Earlier today, Apple sent a memo to its employees warning them not to leak, but it should probably worry about the US FCC.

Apple has had 12 employees arrested over the course of a year ago for leaking internal information about future software plans, according to a memo leaked (ironically) today, spotted by Bloomberg.

The situation is so serious that Apple has been forced to contract employees of other companies to meet all the demands of the customers who are unhappy with their iPhones performance. He also said the CEOs approached Apple to find a middle ground for the case by inking a licensing deal, but the USA firm has rejected the offer. The memo added: "These people not only lose their jobs, they can face extreme difficulty finding employment elsewhere".

Apple ended the threatening memo with a plea to employees to consider "the impact of their actions", on the rest of their colleagues. A company-wide meeting or email, for instance, could be leaked by anyone. Employees will likely also fear leaking to correct inaccurate information being passed around publicly.

In it, Apple said it had caught 29 leakers previous year, 12 of whom were arrested.

The memo was published as an internal company blog post. "A scoop about an unreleased Apple product can generate massive traffic for a publication and financially benefit the blogger or reporter who broke it. Just before last September's special event, an employee leaked a link to the gold master of iOS 11 to the press, again believing he wouldn't be caught", it notes. In 2017, Apple caught 29 leakers. "12 of those were arrested", says the terror missive from Cupertino, ironically leaked to Bloomberg. A memo meant for Apple employees' eyes only revealed that 29 leakers were caught a year ago by Apple.
