According to a new report, following the leak of the new iPhone and other internal discussions, Tim Cook has said that the leakers “do not belong” to Apple.
Apple’s chief executive sent an email to Apple employees warning them not to make internal information public, according to The Verge. The message came after a meeting between employees was leaked in the same publication.
Apple has worked hard in the past to crack down on leaks from within its company. Some of them appear to be successful, for example, recent product launches are less widely reported before Apple’s official disclosure.
But Mr Cook noted that many details of the new iPhone 13 and other products shown at its recent event were revealed ahead of time, and said Apple would find those responsible.
As The Verge reports, he said in the email, “I am writing today because I heard that many of you were incredibly disappointed to see the contents of the meeting leaked to journalists.” :This comes after a product launch in which most of the details of our announcements were also leaked to the press.”
Mr Cook said internal meetings like that only work if the team is able to trust that any information shared will remain within the company. And he said Apple will track people who have shared information on both the meeting and upcoming products.
“I want to assure you that we are doing everything in our power to identify the leakers,” he wrote. “As you know, we do not tolerate the disclosure of confidential information, whether the product [intellectual property] or the details of the confidential meeting.
“We know that the number of leakers is very less. We also know that the people leaking confidential information are not from here.”
Apple did not respond to a request for comment Granthshala.
