"This is probably the reason why we already have so much information about Apple’s upcoming iPhone even though its launch is believed to take place in September. The bizarre reason for this is because such an action would receive too much attention. After the NPS identifies which worker stole Apple’s property, and reveal the company’s secret to the world, authorities like the police rarely arrest the culprit.
The report suggests that when pictures of an unreleased iPhones or iPads appear online, the NPS is quick to work and they are said to be great at tracking down the sources of these leaks. However, before that, it is merely a rumour.. So the person who absconded with the components simply gets charged the parts’ street value.
