Apple Warns Employees to Stop Leaking Information

These Three new iPhones will Rescue Ever Falling Sales of iPhone X

Apple reportedly warned employees in an internal memo that it "caught 29 leakers" a year ago and that 12 were arrested, adding that workers who disclose information to the media have "everything to lose".

Earlier this year, we all had a good laugh when a memo from Snapchat parent Snap leaked.

It's not often we get a look at an unreleased Apple product, but a recent FCC filling revealed a variant of the iPhone X that was never made official. Hundreds of software engineers were in attendance. 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. Such warnings could make Apple workers more afraid of whistleblowing, an analyst warns, while a fired Google employee's lawyer says the line is blurring between permitted conversations (about poor working conditions, say) and illegal leaks.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to Bloomberg, the lengthy memo disclosed that a year ago in 2017, 29 leakers were caught out of which 12 were arrested. They also state that once a leaker is fired, Apple will try hard to make finding employment elsewhere almost impossible. It notes that Apple caught 29 leakers in 2017, including employees, contractors, and partners in its supply chain.

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg very recently said she was upset from what seems to be leakers within the company she helps lead, reports Bloomberg.
