Apple Had 12 Employees Arrested for Leaks - Reveals a

In what is seemingly becoming a trend among tech companies, Bloomberg has published an internal memo sent to Apple employees, suggesting consequences like jail time for those who leak sensitive company information to journalists. But people who leak - whether they're Apple employees, contractors or suppliers - do get caught and they're getting caught faster than ever. Apple has recently posted a cautionary memo on its website, which is one of the most aggressive moves to warn employees against leaking details about upcoming products to the media organisation. Apple warns that it "may seem flattering" to be approached for information, but that in end, "you're getting played".

Over the last few years, Apple has successfully persuaded its customers to increase what they pay for phones from an average of somewhere around $600 to almost $800.

The memo also points to more examples of how Apple's internal security has caught people who believed they could get away with it - including the person who leaked the link to the gold master of iOS 11, and those who leaked within the supply chain.

The employee who leaked the meeting to a reporter later told Apple investigators that he did it because he thought he wouldn't be discovered.

He delivered the blow at 9:58 of the third period, sending Carrier to the locker room for the remainder of the game. They will play a solid game on both ends of the ice and more than likely they'll put a puck or two in the net.

Apple has maintained its privacy and always been a secretive company, but with its growth leaks have become harder to deal. "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.

The anonymous source who leaked the email to Metro told the publication: "It's clear that streaming is the future". Although the documents in the filing were processed in September 2017, there are indications that Apple prepared them as early as July. Chances are, the March 2019 announcement window and subsequent tail off is a result of forecasting for where they see iTunes Store sales trending over the next 12 months.

The letter allegedly said: "Apple will no longer accept new submissions of iTunes LPS after March 2018". "Apple is obviously trying to minimize leaks from employees". Apple's Global Security team led the internal investigations and worked with suppliers to beef up their security.

Every year the details of the new products are leaked ahead of the launch. Among those were Apple employees, contractors and some partners in Apple's supply chain. It adds that in these situations, Apple staffers have "everything to lose" if they give in. "The best way to honor those contributions is by not leaking".
