Apple’s engineer fired for daughter’s viral iPhone X video!

Peterson, who claims her father has been fired as a result of her video. In a tearful video, Peterson explains her father violated an Apple company rule by allowing her to film the unreleased handset at Apple’s campus. Apple reportedly requested that Peterson remove the video, but it was clearly too late as the content spread further and further.

Just because a tech company has announced a product doesn’t mean employees are free to share or talk about it before release — just ask Microsoft. And unfortunately, Peterson’s father has learned that the hard way.

All the same, it’s hard not to sympathize — the engineer had poured his heart into the iPhone X, only to be let go the week before the handset reaches customers. And while he’s likely to land on his feet (“we’re good,” Brooke said), his daughter is clearly distraught by the abuse hurled toward her and her father.

The tenth anniversary iPhone will be available in more than 55 countries around the world, including India.  The iPhone X, Apple’s most expensive iPhone, sold out in less than 10 minutes upon being made available for pre-order. It will start shipping from November 3. The base model costs Rs 89,000 for the 64GB model and the top-end model with 256GB will set you back by Rs 102,000.
