iPhone X hands-on

According to reports, Apple fired an engineer after his daughter’s iPhone X hands-on video became viralized on YouTube. Brooke Amelia Peterson released a vlog earlier this week, which included a trip to the Apple campus to visit her father and see an unseen iPhone X. The video was quickly recovered by sites like 9to5Mac.

Peterson now claims that his father was fired as a result of his video. In a tearful video, Peterson explains that his father violated a rule of the Apple company by allowing him to film the new phone on the campus of Apple. According to reports, Apple asked Peterson to remove the video, but it was clearly too late as content became more and more expanded.

The video seem like an innocent hands-on experience, but it includes images of an iPhone X with QR codes reserved for employees. It also showed a note app on the iPhone X in the video, which appeared to include unpublished Apple product code names. Filming on the Apple campus is strictly prohibited, so filming an unprecedented iPhone X is a violation of the rules.

We have seen similar fired in the past. A Microsoft employee was fired after his son posted photos of the Xbox 360 before its release. The Apple engineer in question had been working at the company for about four years, building RF design and wireless circuitry for the iPhone.
