Apple fires iPhone X engineer after daughter's hands-on video goes viral

Apple fires iPhone X engineer after daughter's hands-on video goes viral

The hands-on video of the iPhone X was uploaded by Brooke Peterson a couple of days ago before Apple figured it.

Those other videos, however, were not shot on Apple property, nor did they feature employee-only QR codes and what appear to be codenames for unreleased products.

An iPhone engineer has been sacked by Apple after allowing his daughter to post a video online about the new iPhone X.

Peterson, who says she loves to make videos and post them on YouTube, was surprised to learn that her preview of the new-generation iPhone went viral.

Peterson's father can be heard saying in the original video that "I did the Apple Pay on that phone, so I wanted to test it". Peterson claims Apple first requested for the video to be removed, but by then it was too late because sites had already picked up on it.

Do you think Apple should have fired the engineer?

For example, this video shows off the setup process for FaceID, Apple's new biometric security feature.

Unfortunately, Apple couldn't tolerate this escapade so they fired her dad.

So, the blogger's dad lost his job at Apple as the company has zero tolerance for product leaks.

Later, Brooke shot and uploaded another video, in which she seemed nearly broken down. 'Look at how big the screen is. you just swipe to go back home'.

Now she's shared news of her father's professional demise, with no mention of just how long he's grounded her for.

That secrecy element affects the iPhone X, which Apple unveiled this past September and hasn't talked about much since.

"My dad showed me his phone, and I was filming it in the Apple cafeteria".

Shortly after Peterson posted her video to YouTube, it went viral, causing a craze among iPhone devotees.

In 2005 Microsoft fired one of its employees after his son leaked photos of the unreleased Xbox 360 on to the world wide web.
