Can you hack an iPhone? A million bucks say you can’t.

Apple's Bug Bounty program expanding

Apple has a $1 million waiting for anyone who can hack an iPhone, expanding its Bug Bounty program.

The program, which previously offered rewards of up to $200,000 for finding problems in iOS devices, first launched in 2016.

Starting this fall, it will expand to include all of Apple’s platforms — iOS, iCloud, tvOS, iPadOS, watchOS and macOS.

All you need to do to get the million dollars is gain full control of an Apple device remotely, without the owner of the device ever interacting with it.

Finding other device vulnerabilities results in smaller rewards of up to $500,000.

The program is open to anyone who wants to participate. It’s no longer invite-only. 

The announcement comes as data breaches become increasingly common in the tech and financial industries.
