Leaked memo warns Apple employees about leaking to the media

Leaked memo warns Apple employees about leaking to the media

The company has reportedly posted a memo on its internal blog that cautions the workforce and highlights that of the 29 "leakers" found previous year, of whom 12 were arrested.

"Apple has also been quick to point out this will not affect people's ability to play downloaded music on any of the company's devices, and all tracks previously bought through iTunes, and users' current iTunes libraries, will still be fully playable".

Apple warned its employees that leaking details about the latest iPhone could land them in jail.

Google to revamp Gmail, new update will roll out soon
USA tech giants see Africa as a relatively untapped market for smartphones and services such as web search and social media. Google says's big redesign will be out " in the coming weeks ", and we hope to hear more about it at Google I/O .

The establishment of a very us-versus-them culture when dealing with outsiders is notable because it means Apple employees may fear becoming whistleblowers.

Apple will not tolerate employees who leak information about their products anymore. Apple says leaked information can depress sales of existing product models, and give competitors more time to respond to features coming in future models. In the strongly worded memo, Apple describes their commitment to stopping and punishing such leakers. "I have faith deep in my soul that if we hire smart people they're gonna think about this, they're gonna understand this, and ultimately they're gonna do the right thing, and that's to keep their mouth shut", one company V.P. said. But the Apple employee who leaks has everything to lose.

This discovery was made via a document Apple filed with the US FCC in September 2017. The memo added: "These people not only lose their jobs, they can face extreme difficulty finding employment elsewhere". Let's see this new move will help Apple in keeping the secrecy of the product, or once again company will face the leak renders before the launch. Multiple employees were caught sharing details about the iPhone X, iPad Pro and Airpods with a 9to5 Mac reporter, according to the memo. Global Security has worked hand-in-hand with suppliers to prevent theft of Apple's intellectual property as well as to identify individuals who try to exceed their access. 12 of those were arrested.

He added: "In any event, the United States , under my Administration, has done a great job of ridding the region of ISIS. Decisions will be made "fairly soon", Trump said, adding: "It's too bad that the world puts us in a position like that".

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

If the leaks don't stop, Apple warned potential legal action and criminal charges. "The best way to honor those contributions is by not leaking".
