Apple leak memo leaks, threatening employee termination and arrests

Apple leak memo leaks, threatening employee termination and arrests

Apple has been swamped with high demand for subsidized iPhone battery replacements ever since it began offering them as part of its apology for failing to disclose that it throttled the performance of older iPhones.

Milunovich believes that Apple has three-point agenda behind the new strategy that defines the price of iPhones scheduled for the launch in late 2018. "We want the chance to tell our customers why the product is great, and not have that done poorly by someone else", Greg Joswiak, an Apple product marketing executive, said in the memo.

But that doesn't mean that Apple is impervious to leakers, and the last 12 months have been a little worse than usual. Apple also cited a yet-to-be-released software package that revealed details about the unreleased iPhone X and new Apple Watch.

Last month, Apple caught and fired the employee responsible for leaking details from an internal, confidential meeting about Apple's software roadmap. However, the company added that while the reporter would get massive traffic, Apple employee would lose a job, could get arrested, face massive fines, and have their professional identity tainted forever.

The full text of the memo can be read over at Bloomberg. In 2017, Apple caught 29 leakers. Now, Apple Store employees have admitted that the Cupertino-based company is hiring external contractors to assist the Apple Store employees.

The March date won't be when services start being pulled but is instead when Apple will make its plan public, allowing users to make ample preparations for the service to close.

Tech watchers are generally assigning a few names to the next iPhone line-up, so for the sake of this article, I'm going to refer to the iPhone X's successor as the iPhone 11 and the iPhone 8's successor as the iPhone 9. Last year, another employee was sacked for leaking details about the iPhone X, iPad Pro, and AirPods to 9to5Mac.

Apple has a workforce of 135,000, and one of the biggest and most convoluted supply chains in the business, so clamping down on leaks is going to be hard.
