Apple Memo Urging Employees Not to Leak . . . Leaks

"In some cases, [leakers] face jail time and massive fines", Apple said, adding that in 2017, it caught 29 leakers, 12 of whom were arrested. The company need to deal with both the leaks among its own corporate employees as well as from its supplier partners. Mark Zuckerberg fired back with the statement that Cook's comments were "glib", and reminded parties that Facebook doesn't charge for their services while Apple makes a point of charging as much as they can for every device.

It reminds employees that when they're approached by press, analysts and bloggers they're "getting played".

Earlier this year, Apple caught an employee who leaked details of an internal meeting where Apple's senior vice president of engineering Craig Federighi informed employees that certain software features in iOS would be delayed.

"Leakers do not simply lose their jobs at Apple".

Putting Apple in a rather harsh light, a freshly leaked memo shows the draconian measures it takes to stop employees and business partners from leaking sensitive information.

Apple is offering $29 battery replacements for the iPhone 5s, iPhone 7 Plus and all models released in between for the duration of 2018.

It concludes by sharing the news that 12 of the leakers in 2017 were arrested.


Apple also called part-time employees or those who normally work for AppleCare but ultimately was forced to call in people from other companies.

The anonymous source who leaked the email to Metro told the publication: "It's clear that streaming is the future".

"The memo conflates "leaking" -which is likely a violation of Apple's corporate confidentiality agreement but not criminal - with serious criminal wrongdoing such as stealing trade secrets for a competitor, or hacking into Apple's property computer systems", said Braunig.

"The impact of a leak goes beyond the people who work on a particular project - it's felt throughout the company", the leaked memo reads. Apple's Global Security team led the internal investigations and worked with suppliers to beef up their security.

Contractors are required to undergo training as with other Apple staff before handling customers' iPhones.

Leaking Apple's work undermines everyone at Apple and the years they've invested in creating Apple products. "The best way to honor those contributions is by not leaking".
