Details of the payment have not been released, though Apple does offer up to $200,000 in cash bounties as part of its bug bounty program. The company formally launched the initiative (an industry norm) in 2016 and reprtedly invited a batch of security researchers to take part in it. Luca Todesco — a 19-year-old who was hailed as the first person to jailbreak an iPhone 7 — was apparently among those who got the call. Earlier that same year, Facebook paid a $10,000 bug bounty to a 10-year-old Finnish kid who figured out a way to delete other users’ comments from Instagram’s servers. My point is that, if you ever found a loophole in any of your devices, Apple or not, do get across to the care center as you never can tell how massive you would be appreciated for making an effort.
