Bloomberg reports an Apple memo (that was leaked, funnily enough) warns employees that the tech company will seek criminal charges against anyone who leaks information.
Recent reports suggest that Apple might be getting ready to launch the gold iPhone X to revive flagging sales. In one case, Apple cited a meeting led by Apple's software engineering head Craig Federighi. Apple discovered the employee that leaked what was said at the meeting, and fired him. If this gold iPhone X is real, it won't be too long before Apple introduces it for everyone. And the company is known to have quietly leaked information through its own "unofficial" methods, whenever it deems them worthwhile. Global Security's digital forensics also helped catch several employees who were feeding confidential details about new products including iPhone X, iPad Pro and AirPods to a blogger at 9to5Mac. Facebook and Google also keep a tab on their workers and check what information they share publicly. Since we have no information on any additional features or special status for the Blush Gold variant, we can only assume it will retail for the same price as the Space Gray and Silver units. But Apple's obsession with confidentiality and secrecy goes beyond that of most tech companies; previous year, the Outline obtained a recording of an internal briefing at Apple meant to address its war on leakers. When asked why he did it, he responded by saying that he didn't think he'd be caught.More news: After Syria Strikes, Trump Claims Victory While Syrian Regime Refutes Effectiveness
Internal leaks are frequent in Silicon Valley companies, but have been noted to be on the increase at Apple particularly. The memo was addressed to Apple employees, suppliers and contractors. Tim Cook leaks have become more common.
