The engineer who was sacked, Peterson's father Ken Bauer, is seen in the video using Apple Pay on the iPhone X. He hands the phone to his daughter, and she walks through various features. The same thing has happened in a real-life scenario in the United States of America. Brooke Amelia Peterson says she and her father have found that out the hard way.
She added that her dad had "a good run" on Apple, and despite him being fired, 'we'll be okay'. In a time frame of 45 seconds, she showcased design, UI elements and camera module.
Brooke's YouTube video was promptly deleted, but not before Apple fan boys had copied it and began to proliferate it across YouTube. Reportedly, Peterson has said that her father has broken the Apple's guidelines and the violation of Apple's law will not be tolerated.
Her father is seen in the clip, since taken down but still available online, saying he had "done the Apply Pay" for the device and playing with a talking alien emoji. "They had to do what they had to do".
Brooke Amelia Peterson has issued a tearful Youtube video explaining how a "hands-on" look at the unreleased smartphone resulted in her father being let go from the tech giant.
So, what do you think about this incident? Though iPhone X has been revealed, Apple has serious policies for showing their products and recording them for unauthorized channels.
As a outcome of which - Brooke's father - an iPhone X engineer had to pay for it.
Apple, known for its strict code of secrecy and conduct, expects all its employees to be tight-lipped about its business strategies and developments. A notes app was also shown on the iPhone X in the video, which appeared to include codenames of unreleased Apple products.
A Youtuber posted a pretty standard vlog last week that featured a day of shopping and visiting her dad at work.
