Apple threatens leakers with criminal action in leaked memo

Аналитики Apple не успевает разрабатывать программное обеспечение для своих продуктов iTunes is NOT shutting down - Apple rubbishes rumours that it will scrap music player

According to a new report, Apple recently sent a memo warning employees not to leak company information, saying 29 employees were caught past year, 12 of whom were arrested. It adds that in these situations, Apple staffers have "everything to lose" if they give in.

But the irony of Apple scolding employees for leaking in a memo leaked to Bloomberg is stark, and shows that the California-based tech giant is struggling to keep their massive staff in check. The memo said the leakers were Apple employees as well as contractors and supply chain partners. Same went for Apple's iPhone X in the September of 2017.

Of course, a gold iPhone X was a no-show past year. "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. The leaked memo states that a hundred software engineers and a thousand employees withheld this information.

According to a new investor note from UBS analysts Steven Milunovich and Benjamin Wilson, Apple won't just stick to the $1,000 price range but it will also breach the current price range for its upcoming iPhone X this year, Business Insider reported. "12 of those were arrested", read the memo.

Apple isn't the only company with this problem, as most big companies with juicy products face leaking employees.

The group consists of five Republicans and five Democrats, who expressed concerns about a recent report from the Office of the Inspector General which found the Federal Bureau of Investigation didn't exhaust all options before making demands from Apple, Reuters said.

They said Apple could make an announcement about iTunes music downloads being stopped in early 2019 or by March 31 next year.

Apple seems to be notorious for its culture of secrecy and has reportedly made employees sign non-disclosure agreements specific to projects and even used black cloths to cover unreleased products. 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). They are the result of a decision by someone who may not have considered the impact of their actions.
