The boy, who can not be identified because of his age, appeared at the Children's Court to plead guilty to the hacking.
The 16-year-old accessed 90 gigabytes worth of files, breaking into the system many times over the course of a year from his suburban home in Melbourne, reports The Age newspaper. The report cited a Thursday hearing from the Children's Court of Victoria that claimed he downloaded a ton of confidential information and accessed user accounts.
The teenager allegedly also accessed customer accounts, although the size and scope of the accounts has not been made public. The data that had been downloaded was apparently stored in a folder named "hacky hack hack".
Apple contacted the FBI after becoming aware of the hack and the matter was then referred to the Australian Federal Police.
An AFP raid on the boy's home revealed two laptops with serial numbers matching those of devices which had accessed the system.
The Age reports that in the Children's Court yesterday, his lawyer said the boy became "so well known in the worldwide hacking community that even mentioning the case in detail could expose him to risk".
The mobile phone was used to let others know about his successful forays: he posted about them using the end-to-end encrypted messaging app WhatsApp. According to his lawyer, the teen is a well-known figure in the hacking community.
We've never heard that Apple laptops transmit their serial numbers to Apple over the internet. The prosecutor on the case noted that Apple was "very sensitive about publicity".
"The objective was to connect remotely to the company's internal systems".
The boy pleaded guilty and will return to the court for sentencing in September.
