Apple reportedly laid -off an engineer after his daughter’s iPhone X ‘hands-on’ video went viral on YouTube.
Brooke Amelia Peterson published a Vlog which included a trip to the Apple campus to visit her father and see an unreleased iPhone X.
This video spread rapidly all over the internet and even by several gadget review websites.
In a tearful video, Brooke claims her father had been fired due to her Vlog.
Although the video did seem like an innocent hands-on video, it included footage of an iPhone X with special employee-only QR Codes.
The notepad in the video was also shown , which had some codes on them. What appeared to be codes of unreleased Apple products.
Filming on Apple Campus is strictly prohibited, specially Brooke filming the iPhone X was surely a major violation.
There was a similar dismissal seen in the past wherein a Microsoft employee was dismissed after his son posted pictures of the Xbox 360 before its release
