Apple Asked GitHub To Remove iOS Source Code

Apple ordained the GitHub to take down the posted source code which was earlier leaked at the platform. The source code was leaked at the GitHub and after knowing that, Apple immediately issued a takedown notice. The leaked code was first spotted by Motherboard and it also confirmed that it is for the “iBoot” process of iOS. The process ensures the starting up of the iOS devices whenever the users turn on their devices.

The source was already been leaked over the Reddit few month back but catches more eyes when posted on GitHub. After the leak, there is a sensation among the tech enthusiast over the social media. As experts explain this incident as the biggest leak in the history of Apple. The source code belongs to the iOS 9 and it contains some files related to iOS 11. This could help the attackers in revealing some of the iOS vulnerabilities or potential exploitation. As a result, Apple took the issue tightly and ordered the GitHub to remove the source code without wasting any time. However, several backups of the code are circulating over the web, now.

Moreover, Apple also has confirmed that the source code is legitimate and it could contain some iOS 11 files. However, the tech giant assured the safety of users against any potential threat referring the Security Enclave. “Old source code from three years ago appears to have been leaked, but by design, the security of our products doesn’t depend on the secrecy of our source code. There are many layers of hardware and software protections built into our products.” Apple said to the Techcrunch.

However, the source code misses some of the files, which makes it impossible to compile. According to experts the codes available of “iBioot” source and additional documented information could help in jailbreaking the iPhone and iPads. It seems Apple is facing issues with its devices and OS one by one. Initially the iPhone performance and battery problem, then iPhone X calling bug keeping the company in the news.
