Before the infamous incident of an iPhone 4 being left in a bar, Apple had one of the tightest security measures for maintaining secrets. Since then, leaks of upcoming Apple products have been routine, and the company has finally had enough. Apple has reportedly sought help from Chinese authorities to crack down on people who leak its products, according to Sonny Dickson, an Australian who has leaked a few Apple components. Dickson says that Apple is trying to prevent any further leaks about the upcoming iPhone 6, and it's even taken the step of hiring 200 private security guards to track down and block any further revelations about its flagship smartphone.

While the iPhone 4 appeared prematurely because of the irresponsibility of one employee at its Cupertino headquarters, almost all Apple leaks these days come from the supply chain in China. Apple outsources its manufacturing to several companies, which means maintaining tight control is incredibly difficult. Factory workers can be bribed to sell information to case makers or counterfeiters, and others just like to leak information to the press and blogosphere. It's tough to keep a tight lid on things when the Touch ID sensor is made one place, the display is manufactured in another, the processor is handled by another group, and it all gets assembled later. There are plenty of potential leak sources along the way, and Apple, like most companies, can't seem to plug them all.
