The use of outsiders is a premiere for Apple but it was the last resort the company appealed to in order to fulfill the massive iPhone battery replacement requests coming for clients who are unhappy with their Apple devices' performances.
The situation is so serious that Apple has been forced to contract employees of other companies to meet all the demands of the customers who are unhappy with their iPhones performance. Apple warns that it "may seem flattering" to be approached for information, but that in end, "you're getting played". "But the Apple employee who leaks has everything to lose". "These people not only lose their jobs, they can face extreme difficulty finding employment elsewhere".
Apple ended the threatening memo with a plea to employees to consider "the impact of their actions", on the rest of their colleagues.

And "genuinely flexible and widely available work arrangements and measures to prevent daily workload impinging on domestic life". Women across the country on Tuesday are wearing red to show how far "in the red" they are compared with their male counterparts.
In reality, some leaks can be harder to track or stop.
It concludes by sharing the news that 12 of the leakers in 2017 were arrested.
Apple sympathizers will say that leakers are fundamentally different from whistleblowers-employees may justifiably feel compelled to speak out about wrongs committed at a company, but leaking for leaking's sake is bad for morale.
While they carry serious consequences, leaks are completely avoidable. "The best way to honor those contributions is by not leaking".
