It's not rare for people hired to promote other companies endorse Apple
Back in 2018, a public figure hired to promote Samsung's smartphones was sued by the company for using the iPhone X during an interview.
Before that, in 2012, Samsung's president and chief strategy officer Young Sohn openly admitted to using Apple devices at home. The same year, Oprah Winfrey accidentally expressed her love for the Microsoft Surface RT using an iPad.
In 2013, a tennis star who was supposed to endorse the company used his Twitter account from an iPhone to promote the Galaxy S4.
More recently, in May 2020, Xiaomi's CEO Lei Jun was caught using an iPhone to post something on the Chinese social networking platform Weibo.
