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

"The memo conflates "leaking" -which is likely a violation of Apple's corporate confidentiality agreement but not criminal - with serious criminal wrongdoing such as stealing trade secrets for a competitor, or hacking into Apple's property computer systems", said Braunig.

The memo, which was posted to an internal Apple message board, stated that the company had caught twenty nine leakers a year ago and twelve of them were arrested. Hundreds of software engineers were in attendance, and thousands more within the organization received details of its proceedings.

One person was caught after sharing "a link to the gold master of iOS 11" with the press ahead of Apple's September iPhone X event, the memo indicates.

Apple had previously denied any plans around possibly killing its service but, as of last month that changed. The memo highlighted that 12 of those leakers are arrested which determines to be the most stringent action taken in light of privacy breach. These people not only lose their jobs, they can face extreme difficulty finding employment elsewhere. In addition, leaks are competitors to create the best product.
