iPhone X will be available from November 3 and Apple has already shown how serious the company is about its products. Apple has zero tolerance against its product and project leaks and the company proved it again. The iPhone maker just fired an employee for leaking the iPhone X features in a YouTube video.
“At the end of the day, when you work for Apple it doesn’t matter how good of a person you are,” said Brooke Amelia Peterson, daughter of an Apple employee. She also said “ If you break a rule, they just have no tolerance. They had to do what they had to do.” in the 5 minutes 1 second long YouTube video she posted on October 28.
Peterson uploaded a video on her channel featuring the iPhone X, that lead the Apple to fire her father, who was an engineer at Apple and worked on iPhone X. The 5-minute video she uploaded in September includes the shopping in silicon valley and then continues it with a trip to the Apple campus to meet her father. In the meeting with her father at the Cupertino headquarter of Apple where daughter-father had brunch at Apple Cafe, Peterson’s dad handed her the iPhone X he posses for testing purpose. The 45-second section of the video showing the iPhone X features and camera by Peterson went viral and catches the attention of iPhone lovers.
The video was pulled by the Peterson immediately after Apple came to know about it and asked her to do delete it. But it was too late, as Apple didn't took it lightly and decided to fire her father mentioned by Peterson in the video. We all know how uncompromising and austere Apple is regarding any leak of its product information. In order to maintain the secrecy of the product, the company uses the code names and have an investigation team to track down the leaks.
In the video posted on Saturday Peterson explain what exactly happened and also said she was making the video “for fun because I love making YouTube videos” without awareness of that she was breaking the Apple’s regulations. She ended the video by saying that she will keep using the Apple’s products, even after the company has fired her father so, "Don't worry Apple".
