A former Apple employee provided information about the company's new developments to a familiar media employee.
According to The Verge, in exchange, he asked a journalist to write articles to promote his startup.
Apple has filed a lawsuit against its former employee. It turned out that he was downloading documents on new developments and other information and passing it on to the journalist.
The employee has worked for the company for about 11 years. Even after submitting his resignation letter, he went to a meeting on a secret new project for the company.
