Apple has reportedly asked several of its employees to wear body cameras in the workplace to prevent leaks. The report claims that Apple is forcing some of its employees to wear “police” body cameras. These cameras are said to be similar to the law enforcement camera – Axon Body 2 – seen by police personnel. This is a drastic step by Apple, which is likely to be taken to prevent premature leakage of its products – especially the upcoming iPhone, iPad, AirPods and Mac. It is unclear which teams or employees were asked to wear these body cameras, but the report says the new rules do not apply to all Apple staff.
First page Tech reports that Apple has “taken this new dramatic step to ensure that its hardware trade secrets remain out of the hands of downloaders.” This new match is only for specific teams, not for all Apple employees. The report does not say which teams were asked to wear these body cameras.

The employee is accused of sharing details of unreleased hardware, sudden changes in features and future product announcements.
