Global smartphone and tech company Apple has fired one of its senior executives, Tony Blevins. Although the company has not given the reason for this, but this decision has been taken after the arrival of a TikTok video in which Tony made derogatory remarks about women.
of Reuters Report It is reported that this Tiktok video was posted earlier this month. In this, Tony talked about having expensive cars, playing golf and having fun. Tony was questioned by a Tiktok content creator, Daniel Mac, at a car show, in response to which he openly told his being rich and doing debauchery. Tony and Mac were both in a Mercedes sports car and laughed at Tony’s abusive words. It is said that Tony was speaking the same lines as the main character of the film ‘Arthur’ which came out almost four decades ago.
Apple has not commented on Tony leaving the company. Reuters’ attempts to contact Tony about the matter were unsuccessful. However, Bloomberg quoted a statement as saying that Tony had apologized for doing so. He said that it was a mistake made in jest. As Vice President at Apple, Tony was instrumental in the company’s supply chain division.
iPhone maker Apple has been hit by lower-than-expected demand for its new iPhone 14 series handsets. The company has asked the suppliers to reduce the assembly of iPhone 14 by 6 million units in the second half of this year. As Bloomberg reports, company India has set a target of manufacturing around 90 million handsets in the second half, which is the same as last year. The demand for higher priced models of iPhone 14 is more than its lower priced handsets. The company’s new iPhone 14 will be made in India. Apple is expected to grow its business rapidly from this world’s largest smartphone market after China. Earlier this month, Apple launched its new series of iPhone 14 models. It has a better camera, powerful sensors, satellite messaging features for SOS text in emergency.
