To prevent leaks, Apple requires employees to wear body camera

The smartphone industry is plagued with leaks that sometimes ruins the surprise from manufacturers. While some companies appreciates leaks and could even leak their designs, others dont. One of the major critics of leaks is Apple. Simply put, hates leaks. According to a recent report, the company will make some of its employees to wear “police-grade” body cameras. This is the latest effort from the company to curtail leaks of proprietary information.

According to Front Page Tech, some not all employees will gave to wear body cameras. FPT reports “The company has taken this new dramatic step to ensure that its hardware trade secrets stay out of the hands of leakers,”.


Like we said above, not all employees will wear body camera. Probably, only employees with access to proprietary hardware information will have to wear this gadgets. Nevertheless, it is important to note that there is no information on the number of body cameras that an employee will have to wear.

The irony here is that this report is also a leak which implies that even the body cameras may not stop internal information from leaking. As of now, we dont know how intends to use the body camera to stop leaks. An employee can simply memorize the bottom – line of the document without even looking at the document. How will the body camera stop this?

is after me – says Jon Prosser

Jon Prosser, the owner of Front Page Tech and a popular leakster recently released a video with the title “Apple is coming after me for LEAKS…”

Prosser claims that the First Amendment protects him as a journalist. He passively mentions the body camera rumors and stated that went after a Dutch artist (concept) that produced renders of AirPods Max and AirTags. However, he vehemently denies giving any money for the information (leaks) he gets. He said “I’ve never paid a source…No money has ever exchanged hands. No transactions have happened. And I’ve always made clear to employees that they are under no pressure to give me information.”

Leaks keep rolling out despite ’s efforts

Despite all the company’s hardwprk to keep information within the company, ’s employess seem to love to talk. The company has even warned employees about severe punishments if any leak is linked to them. However, this seems not to be stopping anything. While some leaksters get their information directly from Apple’s employees, others go to the supply chain, monitor what they do and infer what Apple will probably do.
