‘Kang’ is a famous tipster as the tipster holds the number one spot in Apple Tracks
The leaker posted a notice received on Apple on Chinese social media site Weibo last week. ‘Kang’ is a well-known tipster as the tipster holds the number one spot in Apple Tracks, a website that compares the credibility of information shared by various leakers. Kang said a letter from a law firm claimed his actions could have led to the sharing of information with Apple’s competitors, or mislead customers about upcoming devices.

Kang claims he never signed NDA
The legal notice also includes screenshots of his Weibo page showing posts beyond leaks, such as posts where he talks about the problems he has had with Apple products. Kang posted about all four iPhone 12 models ahead of launch, revealing prices, colors and planned release dates. Kang claims he never signed an NDA, published any anonymous photographs or profited from his information. However, he said he would not post ‘puzzles’ or ‘dreams’ about upcoming devices, so the notice may have had Apple’s intended effect.
