This Is the Gold iPhone X That Was Never Released

This Is the Gold iPhone X That Was Never Released

Apple uncovered 29 "leakers" in the company a year ago and had 12 of them arrested, according to an internal memo leaked to Bloomberg.

The memo attempts to curb internal leaks by warning employees that reporters and media outlets may try to befriend them, but the cost of a leak means reporters earn more web traffic while the employees could lose their jobs. In 2017, Apple caught 29 leakers. According to the reports, Samsung will begin manufacturing what can be called as 2018 iPhone X handset's first ever component, the OLED screens.

The company did not provide details on the dozen arrests that it said took place previous year, but said those included "employees, contractors and some partners in Apple's supply chain". It is said that lowering the price of the iPhone X won't make much sense for Apple so it might just stop the production of the particular device. In 2012 Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Apple will double down the secrecy on the product, but it doesn't seem like.

The memo has been leaked to Bloomberg. 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.


Though the leak from the FCC isn't completely unreliable, don't get your hopes up until Apple introduces it themselves, which could likely happen at WWDC this year. "12 of those were arrested", said the memo published on Bloomberg.

"Within days, the leaker was identified through an internal investigation and fired".

We're sure that Apple didn't want these photos being leaked out, even after the iPhone X's release.

"The success of these outsiders is measured by obtaining Apple's secrets from you and making them public", the company argues, wrongly. Among those were Apple employees, contractors and some partners in Apple's supply chain. "The best way to honor those contributions is by not leaking", added the memo.
