A furious Frenchman was arrested on Thursday after he marched into an Apple Store and smashed up several iPhones using a petanque [bocce] ball.

The unnamed man was captured on camera using the solid metal ball to crush the smartphones and at least one laptop.

Dressed in dark glasses and one white glove, the vandal struck in the Toison d'Or shopping centre in Dijon.

He was eventually arrested after trying to flee from security guards.

In a video of the incident shared on social media, the man declares that Apple "violates customer rights" and claims he has been refused a refund.

Footage shows the man methodically making his way round a display of iPhones and smashing them, as the shop alarm shrills in the background.

    Customer service, I'll bet. I've heard a few stories about Apple customer service. The stories must be true to prompt this kind of rage. "Nerd rage is the worst kind of rage."

    There's nothing nerdy about the iPhone.
