A man has caused controversy after changing his name to iPhone 7 in order to win a phone.
The 20-year-old man of Ukraine, has officially changed his name to iPhone 7 after an electronics store offered the latest Apple phone to the first five people who legally change their name to iPhone 7.
Olexander Turin, who is now legally named iPhone Sim (Seven), won a free iPhone after his legal documents showed that he changed his name.
The price of the phone starts at $850 in Ukraine, while changing one’s legal name costs only about $2.
iPhone’s friends and family were shocked when they learned of his plans, but he said that they ultimately supported the idea.
His sister, Tetyana Panina, said that “it was difficult to accept and hard to believe it’s true.”
iPhone said that he might change his name back to Olexander Turin, when he has children.
