Apple is now taking action against famed leakers in the community. The two most reliable and well-known leakers who deliver most of the time, error-free leaks are “L0vetodream” and “Kang”, both operate on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo.
Kang, this week, posted on Weibo that he has received a letter from a law firm representing Cupertino giants about information he had leaked. The company also put changes to its internal development process for a continuing crackdown on leaks. L0vetodream tweeted that they have not received any letter from the company lawyers regarding leaks.
Warning given by Apple lawyers, they warn that leaking information regarding products which are not disclosed yet by the company, will affect the company in multiple ways. It will make easy for competitors to access secret information and misleading customers “because what is disclosed may not be accurate.”
Kang mentioned on Weibo (translated via 9to5Mac):
Recently, Apple commissioned a law firm and sent some letters in groups. I also received this group message. The content is probably that you can’t disclose what we haven’t published on the Internet, which will give Apple’s competitors effective information and also mislead consumers, because what is disclosed may not be accurate.
While talking about the Android phone makers, we usually know many features about their device before it launches, but Apple’s latest efforts to stop leaking of unreleased products may leave at least a few surprises for the launch day.
