Apple details its crackdown on leakers…in a leaked memo

Apple ios 11

They claim to have caught 29 employees previous year and 12 of them were eventually arrested. "These people not only lose their jobs, they can face extreme difficulty finding employment elsewhere", Apple added.

The Guardian could not independently confirm the memo, and the company did not respond to a request for comment on Friday.

MacRumors first noticed the public images - on the very same day that Bloomberg revealed Apple's internal memo. With the iPhone X not selling as well as expected, analysts say Apple might "counter intuitively" raise the price when it launches the new version of the flagship phone later this year. "We want the chance to tell our customers why the product is great, and not have that done poorly by someone else", Joswiak wrote in the memo. Employees will likely also fear leaking to correct inaccurate information being passed around publicly.

The memo was published as an internal company blog post. The employee filed a lawsuit claiming their speech was protected under California law. Word about the seminar leaked, and secrets continued to pour out of the company. Although the documents in the filing were processed in September 2017, there are indications that Apple prepared them as early as July. In 2012, Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook pledged to double down on keeping the company's work under wraps.

In 2017, Apple held a confidential meeting with employees in another bid to stop leaks. But the memo's nearly boastful recounting of leakers' legal consequences is disturbing - and sure to intimidate whistleblowers who want to leak something more important than the date of the next iPhone release. In the leaked memo, it was stated that all Apple employees who were involved in the leak of pre-release iOS details were caught and fire within days while others who were responsible for sharing product details before the launches were also caught. Hundreds of software engineers were in attendance, and thousands more within the organization received details of its proceedings. That can give rivals a head start on catching up with Apple, ahead of an actual public unveiling of the device.

"Among those were Apple employees, contractors and some partners in Apple's supply chain", the company notes.

In many cases, leakers don't set out to leak.

It goes on to say that it's not just a employment at Apple that's at risk, and that "the Apple employee who leaks has everything to lose". Apple warns that it "may seem flattering" to be approached for information, but that in end, "you're getting played".

And just in case you haven't got the message yet, Apple lets it be known that it will make sure you feel the pain if you are sick enough to destroy its trust in you.
