iPhone Source Code LeakediPhone Source Code Leaked

A portion of iOS source code has been posted online to GitHub, and in an interesting twist, a new report from Motherboard reveals that the code was originally leaked by a former Apple intern. According to Motherboard, the intern who stole the code took it and distributed it to a small group of five friends in the iOS jailbreaking community in order to help them with their ongoing efforts to circumvent Apple’s locked down mobile operating system, the Verge reported. The code was posted to GitHub this week, which is when things snowballed to where they are now, with Apple ordering GitHub to remove the code. According to Motherboard, a source at Apple claims that the company was already aware of the leak before it made it to GitHub.
