The source code for the iBoot screen, which is responsible for the iPhone’s boot, has been published on Github.
Apple awoke to a difficult day again. One person published the most important source codes of the iPhone operating system in GitHub. With these published codes, it will be much easier for a hacker to find exploits on the iPhone. The code on Github is owned by iBoot, which is responsible for iOS boot. Thanks to the leaked code, jailbreaking iPhone has become much easier.
The first application that starts when you turn on your iPhone is iBoot. Originally known as the iOS installer, iBoot offers similar features to the BIOS screen on the iPhone. It is not known who leaked such a serious source code, but in the coming days, the company’s head can burn more.
It was understood that the leaked code in GitHub was from iOS 9. Although the number of people using iOS 9 today is very small, some of these source codes are still available on iOS 11. IBoot, one of Apple’s top-selling software to keep it secret, was the most expensive item in the company’s award program. So a software developer was an open-source explorer at iBoot, and if he reported it to Apple, he was getting $ 200,000 from the company.
Jonathan Levin, who wrote a number of books on iOS and MacOSX, said in a statement, “This is the biggest leak in history. It’s a very important code, “he stressed.
Apple has yet to disclose this leak. The company is expected to make a statement on the subject in the upcoming period.
