Apple also introduced a new (PRODUCT) RED iPhone X Leather Folio crafted from specially tanned and finished European leather for a luxurious look and feel. The documents were submitted by Apple to the FCC in September 2017, as all smartphone documents are required to share the details when releasing a new device.
The memo attempts to curb internal leaks by warning employees that reporters and media outlets may try to befriend them, but the cost of a leak means reporters earn more web traffic while the employees could lose their jobs.
"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, is quoted as saying in the memo. It is estimated that Apple could manage to sell only 8 million iPhone X during Q1 2018, resulting in the unprecedented sales decline in just a few months of the launch.
The overarching message of the memo is that "leaks are completely avoidable", but anyone who does leak to the press on objective can expect to be found by Apple's well-resourced security department and prosecuted to the fullest possible extent.
The full text of the memo can be read over at Bloomberg.
"Leakers do not simply lose their jobs at Apple". Now, Apple Store employees have admitted that the Cupertino-based company is hiring external contractors to assist the Apple Store employees.
Apple could be plotting to kill off its online iTunes Store next year, sources have claimed - with the company shifting its focus to streaming music.
iPhone X isn't selling very well so the company might, counter intuitively, raise the price when it launches the new version of the flagship phone later this year, according to UBS. The success of these outsiders is measured by obtaining Apple's secrets from you and making them public. Among those were Apple employees, contractors and some partners in Apple's supply chain. 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.
