'Off the charts' demand for iPhone X leads to month-long backlog

Soon after the video went live, it became viral and many blogging websites called it, the best in action Apple iPhone X till date, which also went into the notice of Apple.

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

iPhone X will be available for release on 3 November 2017. She says her dad takes "full responsibility" for letting her film the unreleased device.

Peterson posted an emotional follow-up video on Saturday explaining that her dad, a "privileged engineer", was sacked because of the video.

In it, she said her father had been a "privileged engineer who had worked on the iPhone X", and did not expect the fallout from the video because of the range of hands-on videos posted online since Apple announced the device in September. It was immediately taken down (only to reappear elsewhere) by Anderson after Apple asked her to do the same.

She explained that she had intended the video to simply be like a diary entry, marking her visit to her father's work. The dropped even more soon after that, reaching the current 5-6 weeks estimates that you might get right now on Apple's online store. It turns out that this didn't exactly fall within Apple's employee guidelines, so the engineer has reportedly been let go.

Apple also adds that users will have to pay $549 for other damage which is separate from screen damage.

IPhone X users, however, can avoid the exorbitant screen fix prices if they opt for AppleCare+ for the device by paying upfront - $199 (roughly Rs. 13,000). The iPhone X is the only device as of now to feature Face ID as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus sport Touch IDs like their predecessors.
