Talk about a forbidden Apple?
The London Jewish Chronicle reports that Israel's chief Sephardic rabbi immersed a student's iPhone in water and destroyed it because it was spiritually dangerous.
TheJC.com cited ultra-Orthodox media reports in saying that Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef said that the incident occurred during a lesson at a yeshiva.
The student complained to the rabbi that the iPhone was expensive. (The website didn't specify which model was involved but an unlocked model 5s costs around $650 in Israel.)
The rabbi told the student that he was not required to reimburse him and that he could go to a rabbinical court about the matter, JC.com reported.
