Apple doesn’t like it when its secrets go public, so it goes without saying that the company really doesn’t like leaks. This week, Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed the leaking reporters with a rather harsh message: You don’t belong here, and we’ll find you.
According to the source, the Apple CEO was furious that two announcements he made last week at a general meeting about the company’s policy on unvaccinated employees who will have to get tested frequently for COVID-19, and about Epic’s antitrust case against Apple. leaked to the media shortly thereafter.
In an email sent to Apple employees on Tuesday, Cook said he heard from many employees how upset they were about the recent leaks about the general meeting. He was upset too. In addition, Cook noted that this is amid leaks about the September annual product launch.
“Team communication is really important. But it only works if we can be sure the content stays inside Apple,” Cook wrote. “I want to assure you that we are doing our best to identify those who leaked. As you know, we do not tolerate the disclosure of confidential information, whether it is the IP of a product or the details of a confidential meeting. We know that a small number of people are leaked. “We also know that people leaking confidential information don’t belong here.”
