Daughter of Apple engineer gets him fired for showing off iPhone X before its official release date to public. Apple takes these product leaks very serious.

You can watch the video of her at the Apple campus eating lunch with parents and showing new iPhone X.

Breaking rules have consequences.

A life lesson for them both (and a reminder to all other Apple employees).
Hopefully he is able to quickly rebound from it.

She said there was plenty of info out there already about the Apple 10 phone. But I guess the dad working for Apple is why they made an example-and even if there was widespread info-he still broke the rule about showing "pre-release" products.

On a personal note-I know this entire family-I used to go to their annual Christmas party at their home-before he got the job working for Apple and relocated to Northern California.

Everything she said about her Dad is true. He is a great guy and was very charitable during the time I knew him. And a great overall family as well.

With all that being said-I don't get why people need to document their life on Youtube.

He handed her the phone while she was recording video with a giant camera. Iím pretty sure he knew what his vlogger daughter was planning to do. Iím surprised anyone would do that after Appleís recent memos about the importance of secrecy.

Apple has a massive enforcement of those rules.. this almost looks like a publicity stunt.

Except that it's not. It 's a mistake made by an Apple engineer and his daughter.

When I saw that girl's video thread, I knew this would happen. Same thing at most companies, they take Non Disclosure Agreements very seriously for a good reason.

This was an intentional leak to get the iPhone faithful all hot and bothered about a new model that does no more than the handset they already have except cost more.
Got to keep the customers turning over their handsets.
Daddy is already re-hired in another zone of cube city and it's all good.
Can someone please explain to me why I need to pay a premium price for an iPhone that does nothing more than a hundred buck Android handset?

I saw this earlier on all the news stations. Can you say "publicity stunt" for free advertising.

I'm looking forward to the day when people say, "Do you remember when people would line up for days to buy Apple products"?

Who on BITOG is going to spend over $1000 to buy one?

Do you remember when people would line up for 5 days in winter time to buy a Cabbage Patch Doll ?

Have no interest for a new one though.
