“Father pays for daughter faults” an Apple employee fired after his daughter iPhone X video went viral on internet
By Mah Jabeen
After the release of the video last week by Brooke Amelia Peterson, an Apple employee daughter, she somehow manages to get her hands on much anticipated iPhoneX. The video showed a trip to the Apple campus, which unsurprisingly went viral. The giant tech company immediately requested Peterson to take down the video, Brooke followed the instructions and took it down but the damage had already been done
At first is seemed as a rumor that the company itself who has orchestrated the video’s release, so that way it may create more hype surrounding iPhoneX, but later on the matter was sorted.
After taking down the video, Peterson upload another video to her YouTube channel claiming that the giant tech company Apple forced to fire her father over the incident. According to the company rules, it is strictly prohibited to film anything on its campus, and the video was in complete violation. Keeping in view the company’s response should not be too much of a surprise, the company certainly does not want to encourage further future recording of any upcoming devices nor have any corporate secrets leaked.
Peterson stated, “Apple let him go,” at the end of the day, when you work for Apple, it doesn’t matter how good of a person you are, if you break a rule they just have no Peterson tolerance. If you want to call me a name, that’s fine, but please leave my dad alone,”
She also said that her father holds fully responsibility for the turn of events, and added that her family no more animosity towards Apple. Peterson also requested that the abuse throw towards her father must stop.

It is worth mentioning here that the iPhone X which Peterson was holding in the video was not the regular one. It was an employee only device and which was been loaded with sensitive information like codenames for the upcoming products as well as staff specific QR codes, including a look at the new Editing application.
Although this incident is particularly unfortunate, and the outcome does not seem to change, it gave an important lesson for others who are eager to showcase their work prior to its launch.
