Apple CEO Tim Cook is said to have tried in a recently released company memo to prevent employees from revealing confidential information.
Then the staff leaked this memo as well.
Cook emailed staff Tuesday to fix the recent information leak, according to The Verge, which received a copy of the memo.
In the email, Cook brought up leaks from an internal company meeting last Friday. Leaked audio recordings of the meeting indicated that unvaccinated Apple employees need regular testing for COVID-19. They also revealed that Cook said he was looking forward to moving forward after an antitrust ruling between Apple and "Fortnite" maker Epic Games.
"I am writing today because I have heard from so many of you that they were incredibly frustrated when the contents of the meeting were leaked to reporters to the press," Cook wrote in the memo, according to The Verge. "I want you to know that I share your frustration. "
Trying to stop employees from leaking additional information, Cook said that Apple "is doing everything in our power to identify those who have leaked."
"As you know, we do not tolerate the disclosure of confidential information, be it product IP or the details of a confidential meeting," he continued in the memo. "We know that the leakers are a small number of people. We also know that people who reveal confidential information don't belong here."
Earlier this month, Apple allegedly fired Ashley Gjøvik, senior engineering program manager, for leaking confidential information. Gjøvik had tweeted allegations of discrimination and harassment in the company for months. Last month, a group of Apple employees launched a website called AppleToo, where employees can share stories of abuse at the tech giant.
Apple's global security team is hiring investigators, some of whom have previously worked with agencies like the FBI and the Secret Service, to prevent leaks and track down leaks as soon as information emerges, according to The Outline.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
