Apple equipment will have an enhanced mode of protection against espionage and hacking


A note about the new mode of operation of the company’s devices appeared in the Apple Newsroom. It should ensure the maximum security of the user’s personal data.

Apple creates a separate mode for a small category of users who are exposed to personal cyber attacks by really dangerous hackers who can steal personal data even from iOS.

Initially, Lockdown Mode will include the following aspects:

  • Blocking attachments in messages (rich links and any files except pictures will be blocked).
  • Just-in-Time technologies for compiling Safari’s JS code will be disabled.
  • All incoming FaceTime calls will be rejected if they are not initiated by the owner of the gadget.
  • All wired connections to the PC will be impossible while the iPhone is in Lockdown mode.
  • Installation of configuration files will also not be possible until unlocked.

What’s more, Apple plans to offer a whopping $2 million reward to those who can bypass Lockdown Mode protection. The new mode will appear in the fall on devices with iOS 16, iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura.
