Leaked Apple memo: 12 employees were arrested a year ago for leaking secrets

In the strongly worded memo, Apple describes their commitment to stopping and punishing such leakers.

Last month, an internal e-mail, titled "The End of iTunes LPs" was leaked to the Metro. In the leaked memo, it was stated that all Apple employees who were involved in the leak of pre-release iOS details were caught and fire within days while others who were responsible for sharing product details before the launches were also caught. The risk is entirely on the Apple employee who passes along the information. No, it's evil journalists that are making them do awful things.

Leaks have become more common under CEO Tim Cook, but this memo claims numerous supply chain leaks have been stopped.

The memo went on to explain how to avoid being finessed into giving away information to the press who "pry for information".

Yeah, those sons-of-bitches in the Fourth Estate are behind this.

It reminds employees that when they're approached by press, analysts and bloggers they're "getting played". The photos are all erroneously stamped "Apple Proprietary and Confidential", erroneous because they're public. It specifies that the employees who lose their jobs for leaking unannounced information face "extremely difficulty" finding employment elsewhere. Despite this, information continues to make its way out of Apple.

Apple is known for not divulging any information about upcoming products before they launch. And for that, Apple hates them.

"The solution that activates the smartphone screen upon authenticating a user's fingerprint was something unprecedented before Jung's invention", Shim Young-tack, another Firstface co-CEO who also serves as a professor at the Korean campus of New York State University, was quoted by local news outlet FN News as saying. And it particularly hates the ones that point out the ludicrous lengths and lies its PR people go to in preventing non-fawners from attending its events.

Last year Apple caught 29 leakers.

Leaking Apple's work undermines everyone at Apple and the years they've invested in creating Apple products. Word about the seminar leaked, and secrets continued to pour out of the company. In the memo, Apple credits its own "investments" and digital forensics for helping it catch leakers.

You wanna know what happened to this Judas, this lower-than-pond-life scumbag? In another case, details about an unreleased software package were leaked, which gave away secrets about the Apple iPhone X and the most recent Apple Watch prior to their introductions.

Boom! And you know what else?
