- After his daughter's YouTube video showing off the iPhone X went viral, Apple reportedly fired one of its iPhone engineers.

YouTube vlogger Brooke Amelia Peterson said in a new video on her channel that her father, iPhone engineer Ken Bauer, had been fired after she showcased the new iPhone X. The phone will be available Nov. 3.

"Apple let him go," Peterson said in the video, after detailing that her original video went viral and became one of YouTube's top trending videos after it was posted. Peterson also posted a picture to Instagram of her and the new iPhone, which has also subsequently been removed.

"At the end of the day, when you work for Apple, it doesn't matter how good of a person you are," Peterson added in the video. "If you break a rule, they just have no tolerance."
