It also mentioned 29 deliberate leaks were reported by the company past year. The memo obtained by Bloomberg states that the company has reportedly warned employees that it caught 29 leakers previous year and that 12 were arrested amongst them. "These people not only lose their jobs, they can face extreme difficulty finding employment elsewhere", said the memo. "Apple is obviously trying to minimize leaks from employees". No, it's evil journalists that are making them do awful things. Leaks have become more common under CEO Tim Cook, but this memo claims numerous supply chain leaks have been stopped.

Yeah, those sons-of-bitches in the Fourth Estate are behind this. Just make sure you have an hour or so of your time as un-pairing and re-pairing your Apple Watch is a tedious process and can take quite a while depending on which Apple Watch model you have, especially if you have the first-generation Series 0 Apple Watch. A scoop about an unreleased Apple product can generate massive traffic for a publication and financially benefit the blogger or reporter who broke it. Tech companies like Apple have the means to discover who is passing along confidential information. Since we have no information on any additional features or special status for the Blush Gold variant, we can only assume it will retail for the same price as the Space Gray and Silver units. Chances are, Apple couldn't release the gold iPhone X in time for the launch event. And for that, Apple hates them.

Analysts believe that "once Apple establishes a price band it typically keeps it", which is consistent with what they have heard from former Apple employees. But Apple says the real enemy may be the media: "People who work for Apple are often targeted by press", the memo reads. In the memo, Apple credits its own "investments" and digital forensics for helping it catch leakers. There's evidence to support the latter: The FCC filing was created last August and submitted in September, four days before the iPhone X was announced.

Boom! And you know what else?
