Employee Fired For Daughter’s Viral Video on New iPhone

  • YouTuber says Apple engineer father fired for her viral iPhone video

During a 5-minute video, Peterson visited her dad at Apple's campus and included under a minute of footage of the new iPhone X's screen and camera functionality.

It is not only that, but the Amelia Peterson video has also revealed other classified information privy to Apple.

A new investor note from Ming-Chi Kuo, the famed Apple analyst with KGI Securities, on Monday said it's likely Apple "won't repeat" the supply and production struggles it experienced with the iPhone X with the new 2018 iPhone models.

The iPhone X has gone on sale, so naturally there is an official fix price list released should you need to fix the device, and since it is an iPhone X, you are not going to expect any friendly prices. The YouTube clip went viral, just days before the super-expensive smartphone was due to go on general sale.

For those still hoping to their hands on an iPhone X on launch day, the best bet would be to line up outside of your local Apple Store.

Apple fired an engineer, as her daughter undisclosed a un-announced Apple iPhone X on a YouTube video showcasing all new features.

"If you break a rule, they just have no tolerance". A brief clip from the video appears to identify her father as Ken Bauer, described as an "RF guy" on a profile found in LinkedIn. It turns out that this didn't exactly fall within Apple's employee guidelines, so the engineer has reportedly been let go.

Apple has not yet commented on the whole incident and employee dismissal. Although, she took down the video after Apple requested, it was too late.

The iPhone X is due to go on sale in the United Kingdom on Friday, and is the first iPhone to remove the Home button, and feature facial recognition software, known as Face ID.

Apple is set to report its quarterly profit and sales to investors on November 2, while likely also providing some details on sales of the iPhone X and iPhone 8, which started shipping on September 22.
