Apple has grown tired of the increased frequency of its products prematurely appearing on blog sites and in the news, and the Cupertino-based company has taken action by trying to tighten security in China. According to Sonny Dickson, an Australian blogger who has leaked a few Apple products, Apple has supposedly sought help from the Chinese governments to go after people who attempt to leak the iPhone 6. He also claims that Apple has 200 security officers working to prevent the sale of iPhone 6 accessories.
In the run-up to the iPhone 5s last year, Tim Cook said Apple would "double down" on secrecy to prevent leaks from happening, but the company hasn't been completely successful. Various outlets have learned that Apple plans to increase the size of the next iPhone, and information about software and features has trickled out for several months. Even today there has been a new leak about the housing of the iPhone 6. The image below is reportedly of the rear casing for the new iPhone. The green case matches the design of iPhone 6 mockups that have appeared online previously, and it shows a larger size. The validity of the leak is known, but the source is obvious. Macfixit Australia says it received the image from a source in China, so maybe Apple will have to triple down on secrecy.
