Reliable Leaker 'Kang' Hit With Warning From Apple

The highly reliable Apple leaker known as 'Kang' and a number of other unspecified leakers have reportedly received warnings from lawyers representing Apple. From a report: According to posts on Kang's Weibo account, Apple recently commissioned a law firm to send admonitory letters to a number of leakers. The letter purportedly cautioned leakers that they must not disclose information about unreleased Apple projects because it may give Apple's competitors valuable information and 'mislead customers, because what is disclosed may not be accurate.' Apple purportedly grabbed screenshots of Kang's Weibo as evidence, which included him talking about problems he experienced with the iPhone, product release dates, and purchase suggestions for his followers, as well as more casual posts. Kang went on to give his personal opinion on the situation. Kang explained that since 'I have never published undisclosed product pictures' or sold his information, Apple must take exception to 'riddles and dreams' about its undisclosed projects.
Apple leaks vaguely characterized as 'dreams' have been popularized in recent years by leakers such as 'L0vetodream,' providing some insiders with a fun mechanism to hint at Apple's future plans without giving too much away. Even 'dreaming will violate their confidentiality mechanism,' according to Kang, who said that under Apple's logic 'if I have a dream, Apple's competitors will obtain effective information.' 'Without sending pictures or leaking pictures, I am still used as a target,' he said. Kang commented that 'I won't post riddles and dreams in the future,' suggested that he will be deleting some previous posts on social media, and expressed the need to 'tone back' posting about Apple since 'talking will be audited.'
