Apple engineer reportedly dismissed after daughter's iPhone X hands-on video reveals more than what it was supposed to

The new vlog by Peterson explains that her father had violated Apple's company policies by allowing her to film the unreleased handset, inside Apple's campus.

According to a new vlog released by YouTube vlogger, Brooke Amelia Peterson, her previous video showcasing a hands-on of the iPhone X has led to her father getting fired from Apple.

The video that went viral after news publications picked up what appeared to be a hands-on of the much-awaited, (yet unreleased version of the) handset, seems to have revealed more than what it was supposed to.

In her previous vlog that went viral, Peterson records her trip to the Apple campus to visit her father, who worked there as an engineer.

The new vlog by Peterson explains that her father had violated Apple's company policies by allowing her to film the unreleased handset, inside Apple's campus.

While Apple had requested the video to be taken down, it was a bit too late, as the video was downloaded and then re-uploaded by other channels, making the spread impossible to control.

But there's more. According to The Verge, the video footage also included footage of an iPhone X with an special employee-only QR code. Add to this a tiny glimpse of the Apple Notes app, which reportedly contained code names of Apple's unreleased products. The publication also hints that filming in the Apple campus is strictly prohibited.

Amelia's Peterson's father had reportedly held a job at the Cupertino giant for about four years and was involved in building the iPhone RF and wireless circuit design. Apple has yet to confirm that Peterson was dismissed.
