Leaked: Pictures of the gold iPhone X

Apple in a lengthy memo posted to its internal blog said it ‘caught 29 leakers,’ last year and 12 of them were arrested

Apple has made a decision to harsh on its employees who leak the information, the company had issued an internal memo regarding this notice to all the members of their firm. There's a 180-day confidentiality period on FCC photos after filing, and that window just recently lapsed for these gold iPhone pics, so now we have an official view of what a new iPhone X colorway could look like.

Before the launch, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had said that Apple had problems regarding the manufacturing of a "Blush Gold" iPhone X. He had then suggested in September that the gold version might be launched later to afford Apple some time to fix the issues. Apple says leaked information can depress sales of existing product models, and give competitors more time to respond to features coming in future models. But Apple's obsession with confidentiality and secrecy goes beyond that of most tech companies; a year ago, the Outline obtained a recording of an internal briefing at Apple meant to address its war on leakers.

"While it may seem flattering to be approached, it's important to remember that you're getting played", it read. "12 of those were arrested", says the terror missive from Cupertino, ironically leaked to Bloomberg. Accordingly, the employees who leaked information lost everything when they were caught red-handed.

"The success of these outsiders is measured by obtaining Apple's secrets from you and making them public", the company argues, wrongly.

But in case Apple employees get too cosy hating journalists, there still some bile reserved for them.

"The negotiations are still in flux", the report notes, "and a recent visit of Samsung honchos to Apple's headquarters didn't end with mutual understanding".

It elaborated that the arrested were Apple employees, contractors and supply chain partners.

The memo also listed examples of people the company caught, including employees who shared details about the iPhone 10 and iPad Pro to a reporter.

Apple said it sent information to the Federal Bureau of Investigation three days after the attack by Farook and his wife. The company is also working with its suppliers to prevent theft of intellectual property, and to identify individuals who try to access information that they are not entitled to have. "The best way to honor those contributions is by not leaking", added the memo.
