A woman whose husband sent a picture of himself, in a compromising position, to another woman, has turned to the online Apple community for help in confirming that her husband is cheating on her.
“Please help!” wrote the New Jersey resident, who identified herself in the Apple forums as Susan042764. “I took my husband’s i-phone (sic) and found a raunchy picture of him attached to an e-mail to a woman in his sent e-mail file (a Yahoo account). When I approached him about this (I think that he is cheating on me) he admitted that he took the picture but says that he never sent it to anyone. He claims that he went to the Genius Bar at the local Apple store and they told him that it is an i-phone glitch: that photos sometimes automatically attach themselves to an e-mail address and appear in the sent folder, even though no e-mail was ever sent. Has anyone ever heard of this happening? The future of my marriage depends on this answer!”
Susan got several replies, nearly all of which broke the news to her – some gently, some not so gently – that her husband was full of it, and was almost certainly cheating on her. Although one of the responses was from a former Apple Genius, saying that “as a former mac genius myself, my professional opinion is that YOUR HUSBAND IS HAVING AN AFFAIR. The iPhone doesn’t do that. Period! He’s totally having you on,” two responses indicated that the same thing had happened to them.

One responder said “I feel bad for Susan, but I am morbidly curious of what the picture looks like and the end results of her findings. I must not be the only one who is wondering about that.”
Susan replied that it was a picture of her husband pleasuring himself, and that “Add that picture to the late night phone calls and some other miscellaneous texts and e-mails that I found … and this is not the first woman … and let’s just say that my atty is working on the divorce complaint. Nonetheless, I wanted to remain open to the possibility that it was all some big mistake (I think that he is the big mistake) and thank everyone who provided input on this discussion.”
Interestingly, although Susan described the picture in general terms that would not even have garnered an PG rating (in fact when we first read the exchange, we noted that she had taken great pains to be very general and not graphic), we note today that the moderator of that Apple forum has edited that part out.
Summed up a user calling themselves Mmmm Red D, “This isn’t the answer you want to hear, but there is no known glitch where an iPhone attaches a photo to an e-mail and places it in the sent box. I verified this with a Genius at Steve’s pet-store in Palo Alto. So either your husband is the only person to encounter this “glitch” or he’s straight-up lying to you. My money’s on the latter.”
So is ours.
So, what do you think?
