Apple claims that leaks about iPhones hurt … accessory manufacturers

Apple continues its war against leaks. One of the Twitter users, who published photos of iPhones prototypes years ago, was to receive a letter from the company, in which the team of Tim Cook accused him of, inter alia, “disclosure of trade secrets”.

The giant says leaks work to its detriment by making it difficult to “surprise the public”, which is said to be “part of the company’s DNA.” But that’s not the end.

Apple argues that leaks also hurt other companies

In Apple’s letter reached by the website’s editors Vice, it is argued that, based on unofficial materials, “external manufacturers may develop and sell covers and other accessories that are not actually compatible with unreleased products.”

And of course, it happens that diagrams leak to the network that suggest slightly distorted dimensions or shape of the iPhone casing. If someone starts mass production on their basis, he may have a problem. Customers who, for example, order a cover from AliExpress before the phone’s premiere may also have a problem.

But shouldn’t this be an appeal to producers not to base their business on leaks? Does Apple really believe the leakage wave will be stopped out of concern for Chinese factories?

Moreover, I dare to say that leaks do more good than bad for the manufacturers of accessories

IFA technology trade fairs are usually held just before the premiere of new iPhones. I regularly see stands piled up with covers for smartphones that have not been presented yet, along with dummy ones.

The early model of the iPhone 11 looks a bit different than the final product

And so & hairsp; – & hairsp; the appearance of mockups often differs more or less from the final products. But do the producers care? I don’t think so, because leaks make a piece of rubber a chance for publicity.

Our editorial e-mail box often receives emails from, for example, glass manufacturers who promote their accessories before the premiere of smartphones. They hope that when writing an article, e.g. about the screen sizes of upcoming devices, we will mention their company.

So I am afraid that Apple’s appeal will not be heard, and external companies will not have a problem with it.
