Apple fires employee as his daughter uploads hands-on video of iPhone X
Apple is very secretive about its products before their official launch.
We all know how secretive Apple is about its products before their official launch. The company takes every possible measure to prevent leaks.
All Apple employees are sworn to secrecy. So what happens when an employee breaks the oath? Apparently, the Cupertino-giant fires them. Last week, a person named Brooke Amelia Peterson had uploaded a hands-on video of the iPhone X on YouTube. Since the smartphone is yet to be released, the video went viral shortly after it was uploaded. Funnily enough, Brooke also happens to be the daughter of a former Apple employee.
We say former because the video cost Brooke's father his job. Apple not only asked her to take down the YouTube video but also fired her father. Of course, firing an employee seems like a drastic step by the company.
However, in Apple's defense, the video contained some confidential information of the iPhone X. It further revealed some codenames of the upcoming Apple products through the Notes app.
Moreover, the video included some sensitive QR codes that are meant for internal purposes. Soon after the iPhone X hands-on video was removed, Brooke uploaded a follow-up video, which is embedded below.
In that video, she claims that she was clueless about the fact that the video she had shot at Apple's cafeteria violated the company's rules. She also says that her father has taken the entire responsibility since he was the one who gave her access to the iPhone X.
Unfortunately, what's done is done. Although it looks like Brooke had uploaded the video just for fun, Apple is not going to give her father his job back.
Notably, this is not the first time something like this has happened. Back in 2010, an Apple engineer was fired after he had shown an iPad 3G for a few minutes to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
