Brooke Amelia Peterson said her father had been fired from Apple for a video she made.

Though the phone features for little more than a minute, Peterson posted another video this weekend, and said that her father had been let go for breaking a company rule.

In a video update, Person claimed that her father was sacked as a result of the early iPhone X video.

For its part, in an official statement, Apple said Bloomberg's claim regarding the diminished power of Face ID "is completely false". She also said in another video released subsequently on YouTube that she did it for the simple reason that she enjoys doing YouTube videos and had no idea the video would go viral and gain so much attention.

The explainer video oscillates between a number of emotions, and understandably includes Peterson crying about her father's dismissal.

Until now, people have used country-specific domains to receive Google search results optimized for that particular region. For example, search results from google.co.uk would be focused on the United Kingdom.

Last week a video surfaced on YouTube where a vlogger was able to get her hands on Apple's new iPhone X. The video was shot on Apple's campus, and the phone was obtained by the vlogger's father, who's an engineer at the company.

Both the camera array used to enable all of Face ID's sensor and the OLED display proved very hard to manufacture, particularly to Apple's high standards, and that delayed the launch of iPhone X on the market by six weeks (as opposed to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus).

Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

Apple has just revealed the price of replacing the device's glossy, edge-to-edge OLED screen - which will cost a whopping £286.44.

Apple is set to report its quarterly profit and sales to investors on November 2, while likely also providing some details on sales of the iPhone X and iPhone 8, which started shipping on September 22. The video gives us what is maybe our best take a gander at the iPhone X's peculiar Animoji highlight.
