The corporate announced right now that it's launching a brand new bug bounty program that may pay people as much as $1 million for discovering and disclosing safety flaws in macOS, tvOS, watchOS and iCloud. In this program, Apple will be supplying special iPhones to security researchers to help them find security flaws in iOS. The prize will go to anyone who can hack an iPhone or Mac under certain conditions. Also, the security bounty program has been opened to all security researchers. It's also the biggest bug-bounty reward offered by a major technology company, according to Forbes. Before, only those on the company's invite-only bug bounty program were eligible to reap the rewards.

Ivan Krstic made the announcement in Las Vegas at the annual Black Hat security conference at the end of a 50-minute long presentation to discuss Apple's security efforts for its hardware and software products. They said that this offer is for Cyber Security Searcher center to find a flaw, problems, and bug in iPhone. They'll, for instance, pause the processor to look at what's taking place with data in reminiscence.

Apple is increasing these rewards within the face of an increasingly profitable private market the place hackers promote the same data to governments for vast sums.

Between all Israel company, NSO Group said, "NSO Group develops technology that is licensed to intelligence and law enforcement agencies for the sole objective of preventing and investigating terror and crime, " Also they included, "It is not a tool to target journalists for doing their job or to silence critics". Apple's new bug bounties are in the same range as some published prices from these contractors, presumably in a bid to deter hackers from approaching those companies and report to Apple instead.

A user on Hacker News comments, "1M is a lot of money to me, a regular person, but when you consider that top security engineering talent could be making north of 500k in total compensation, 1M suddenly doesn't seem all that impressive".
