  1. Apple engineer fired after daughter’s video of apple went viral

An Apple Engineer has been fired after a viral video posted by his daughter went viral. The video follows the daughter touring the Apple campus with her father, which seems pretty innocent but it is what is shown in the video that is the problem. The video showed an unreleased iPhone X, special employee-only QR codes, and code names for unreleased Apple products. The content in the video was picked up by many tech websites and spread like wildfire. Apple promptly fired the father citing that filming on Apple’s Campus and especially filming unreleased information is prohibited. Incidents like this have happened before with other high-end tech companies. Back in 2005, an employee of Microsoft was fired when his son posted a picture of the Xbox 360 before it was released.

     2. People still are lining up for the new iPhone

It seems that people are still lining up for the new iPhone even though it cost one thousand dollars. About eight hundred and twenty-one people lined up for the new iPhone X which is still not the biggest for Apple on opening day. The largest line Apple ever got was for the iPhone 6 which was one thousand, eight hundred and eighty people. The newest release of the iPhone has been nothing but good news for the company. Apple’s stock went up by 3.1 percent or 173.23 dollars per stock and it is projected that Apple will make between 84 and 85 billion dollars during the holiday season. The iPhone X received 25 percent more pre-order than the iPhone 6s, which was Apple’s last major revamp. Currently, many orders have a six-week waiting period but Apple said this past Thursday that they have ramped up the production of the iPhone X.
