Apple officially launched the iPhone Research Device Program, and will send iPhone hackers and security researchers special devices that will make it easier for them to find bugs and vulnerabilities.
The new unc0ver jailbreak relies on a vulnerability that the researcher who found it says Apple is unaware of.
Several people, including security researchers, hackers and bloggers, have had access to an early version of the new iOS 14 for months.
It may be the biggest attack against iPhone users yet.
Apple accidentally unpatched a vulnerability it had already fixed, making current versions of iOS vulnerable to hackers.
Apple expanded the scope of its bug bounty, increased payouts, and promised special devices to a select group of researchers. For jailbreakers and hackers, there’s never been a better time to pwn the iPhone.
