Beijing: An online advertisement urging people not to sell their kidneys but instead donate sperm to win the latest iPhone 6S has gone viral in China, media reported.

“No need to sell a kidney… Shanghai sperm bank can make your iPhone 6S dream come true,” said the advertisement which has gone viral on social networking app WeChat this week, reported Global Post.

Those who qualify to donate can receive up to 6,000 yuan. The latest Apple model is expected to cost around 5,288 yuan, the report said.

“Why sell your kidney when you can donate sperm? It’s a great deed that can bring happiness to a whole family,” said microblog Weibo user “Wojiushiwutong”.

A sperm bank in central China’s Hubei Province posted a similar advertisement highlighting a picture of the new rose gold iPhone 6S, a colour created mainly to attract Chinese consumers.

“I don’t like the idea of making money out of sperm donation to buy new iPhones. Sperm donation is a very serious cause for public good,” one Weibo user said.

But a spokesperson with the Shanghai sperm bank told Xinhua the campaign has worked well so far, raising awareness and attracting potential donors.

While there are tens of thousands of infertile couples in China, all sperm banks across the country, face donation shortages because many young men are unaware or too embarrassed to donate, forcing the banks to turn to social media.

Apple has responded to a tweet by a user who complained about the disappearance of purchased movies from the iTunes library.

The tweet by Anders G da Silva — who recently relocated from Australia to Canada — said three movies he had purchased from iTunes had been removed from his account and he was unable to play or re-download them, Apple Insider reported on Sunday.

“After reviewing the case I have noticed that the content provider has removed these movies from the Canadian Store. Hence these movies are not available in the Canada iTunes Store at this time,” a Senior Advisor from Customer Care Support at iTunes Store tweeted in reply to da Silva.

Apple Support acknowledged that the movies were gone and attempted to rectify the issue by providing rental credits to rent a movie priced up to $5.99, far off the value of the missing films, the report added.

“If you change your country setting, some movies may not be available to re-download from the movie store if the version you purchased isn’t also available in the new country. If needed, you can change your country setting back to your prior country to re-download those movies,” a CNET report quoted an Apple spokesperson as saying.

“Apple is constantly working with content providers to expand the iTunes Store catalogue and to make more items available in more countries,” said Apple Support. (IANS)
