Apple will pay $ 1 million for jailbroken iPhone

Apple announces launch at Black Hat annual security conference in Las Vegas

extended reward program for found vulnerabilities in products.

How much pay

If earlier, the maximum reward for foundvulnerability was $ 200 thousand, now the company is ready to pay $ 1 million. This is the biggest award not only at Apple, but also among all technology companies.

This amount will be paid for iOS vulnerabilities thatallow full access to the device without any physical interaction with the device. For errors detected in macOS, tvOS, watchOS and iCloud, they promise up to $ 200 thousand. $ 500 thousand can be obtained by identifying security flaws that allow hackers to gain access to user data.

To simplify the work of "white hackers", Apple will highlight special smartphones on which some security measures are disabled. Everyone can try their hand.
