Apple warns its representatives on dripping information

Apple warns its representatives on dripping information

Bloomberg has published a new report that includes a memo sent to all Apple employees with a clear message: employees who leak internal information will be fired, face legal action when possible, and risk becoming unemployable at other companies.

It reminds employees that when they're approached by press, analysts and bloggers they're "getting played". They also state that once a leaker is fired, Apple will try hard to make finding employment elsewhere almost impossible.

Naturally, the memo was leaked.

"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. 12 of those were arrested. "Thousands of people work tirelessly for months to deliver each major software release", says UIKit lead Josh Shaffer, whose team's work was part of the iOS 11 leak last fall. To reach Apple's lower tag demands, Samsung has apparently offered to supply the Y-Octa panels that it uses for the S9+.




The memo said "leakers in the supply chain" were also getting caught, adding: "Leakers do not simply lose their jobs at Apple".

"Within days, the leaker was identified through an internal investigation and fired". Apple says that digital forensics helped identify employees who passed along confidential information about the iPhone X, iPad Pro and AirPods directly to a particular phone blog (not us, by the way). It also warns of members of the press who might try to reach out to company employees on social media to gain information about Apple, a tactic known in the business as "reporting". The iOS 11.3 which was released last month is showing some touchscreen issues on the Apple iPhone 8. Sources from multiple Apple Stores have tipped off 9to5Mac with word that in addition to AppleCare employees, external skilled labor has been brought on to cope with incoming jobs. Now, Apple Store employees have admitted that the Cupertino-based company is hiring external contractors to assist the Apple Store employees.

They threw all kinds of claims against me, I had a good lawyer that completely understood the problem, did good research, and read the law correctly. [.] Everyone comes to Apple to do the best work of their lives - work that matters and contributes to what all 135,000 people in this company are doing together. Leaks can also impact sales of current devices, as consumers hold off on buying as they know something better is soon to arrive.
