Apple has reportedly asked a few of its employees to use cameras in their bodies to prevent leaks. The report claims that Apple is getting some of its employees to use “police department” body cameras. These cameras are said to be similar to law enforcement cameras seen by police officers – Axon Body 2. This is a dramatic step from Apple that is supposedly made to prevent premature leaks in its products – especially future iPhone, iPad, AirPod and Mac models. It is not clear which teams or employees will be asked to use these body cameras, but the report says the new rules do not apply to all Apple staff.
Home Tech reports that Apple has “taken this new dramatic step to ensure that its hardware trade secrets do not fall into the hands of leaks”. This new compliance has only been introduced for certain teams and not for all Apple employees. The report does not mention which teams have been asked to use these body cameras.
In March this year, Apple sued the former employee who worked for the company for more than a decade, claiming that he shared its trade secrets with media contact in exchange for the favorable coverage of the invested startup. The employee is charged with details of unshared hardware, unannounced feature changes, and upcoming product announcements.
The upcoming iPhone 13 family, which is expected to launch in September, has also already had several leaks. Again, there are expected to be four models – iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Proand iPhone 13 Pro Max. The phones are is expected to come up to 1TB of storage options and enhanced LiDAR sensors.
In addition, iPhone 13 Pro models may come with updated wide angle cameras with autofocus support. iPhone 13 is is said to occur 6.1-inch LTPO display and two rear cameras. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is said to have three camera sensors behind it, which are larger than the previous version.
