Apple officially launched a new feature called “Lockdown Mode” at this year’s WWDC. The option comes with the iOS 16 system and allows you to resist the attacks of viruses comparable to Pegasus. Now Apple has offered the industry’s highest reward of $2 million to hack this mode.

When iPhone is in lock mode, the system blocks image attachments and link previews in most iMessages. In addition, it will block FaceTime calls from strange numbers, and iPhone data will be blocked until the device is in the hands of the owner.

Lockdown Mode will be available for developer testing this summer, with an official release this fall. Until then, enthusiasts will have to find possible vulnerabilities in it.
