Sources Say Apple Will Provide Special iPhones For Hackers To Test And Offer Mac Bug Bounty

Thomas Brewster on

For instance, it should be possible to probe pieces of the Apple operating system that aren’t easily accessible on a commercial iPhone. In particular, the special devices could allow hackers to stop the processor and inspect memory for vulnerabilities.

Great news. It’s better for everyone if hackers at least get a bounty from Apple rather than be tempted and sell the exploits.

On an unrelated note, first Forbes Apple story in ages that is not a clickbait. I literally almost didn’t visit the page when I noticed the source — that’s how much their reputation has fallen in my eyes.
