Tim Cook 近日向 Apple 內部員工發出一封電子郵件，內容涉及某次會議紀錄被洩漏的問題。他表示，Apple 正在“盡我們所能查明洩漏信息人士的身份”，並指出“洩露機密信息的人不應該繼續留在”Apple。
Tim Cook 説洩漏的會議是指，9 月 17 日一次全公司內部會議上，Apple 將要求對未接種疫苗的員工進行再次進行檢測，但並未強制要求接種疫苗，會議結束後不久，兩條消息都洩露給了外媒 The Verge。
諷刺的是，這封警告員工不要洩漏 Apple 信息的電郵，同樣再次被洩漏：
It was great to connect with you at the global employee meeting on Friday. There was much to celebrate, from our remarkable new product line-up to our values driven work around climate change, racial equity, and privacy. It was a good opportunity to reflect on our many accomplishments and to have a discussion about what’s been on your mind.
I’m writing today because I’ve heard from so many of you were were incredibly frustrated to see the contents of the meeting leak to reporters. This comes after a product launch in which most of the details of our announcements were also leaked to the press.
I want you to know that I share your frustration. These opportunities to connect as a team are really important. But they only work if we can trust that the content will stay within Apple. I want to reassure you that we are doing everything in our power to identify those who leaked. As you know, we do not tolerate disclosures of confidential information, whether it’s product IP or the details of a confidential meeting. We know that the leakers constitute a small number of people. We also know that people who leak confidential information do not belong here.
As we look forward, I want to thank you for all you’ve done to make our products a reality and all you will do to get them into customers’ hands. Yesterday we released iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and watchOS 8, and Friday marks the moment when we share some of our incredible new products with the world. There’s nothing better than that. We’ll continue to measure our contributions in the lives we change, the connections we foster, and the work we do to leave the world a better place.
