In the immediate aftermath of the news that Apple is going after major leaks, news comes that Apple will not be giving some of its employees body cameras to use while working. The cameras are delivered to specific teams, presumably based on what they’re working on.
The news comes via a new video from Jon Prosser and Front Page Tech and was backed up by a post on the FPT website.
You heard it here first. For the first time in history, Apple is having some of its employees use what they told us were “police grade” body cameras similar to the number one camera for law enforcement, the Axon Body 2. “Similar” , if not the same.
Whether Apple is using these specific body cameras or not, the fact that they are handed out to employees is noteworthy. It’s the first time we’ve heard that Apple has taken these kinds of steps to prevent information leaking and we were told it’s been happening for a few weeks.
Apple has always taken a firm stance on leaks and appears to be taking steps to try to prevent them as much as possible. There was a time when information rarely left Apple, but as the company relies on more and more vendors, contractors, and service providers, the number of leaks has increased. It’s no wonder that many of the leaks we see today come from supply chain analysts speaking to people at companies like Foxconn, Pegatron, and others. This is why people like ‘Kang’ get information and Ming-Chi Kuo finds out about products like the iPhone 13 before they are announced.
As Jon Prosser begins to share more leaks, it seems more likely that his sources are within Apple itself. These are cases like those that could be affected by the new body cameras, assuming its the leak is accurate, that is us!
