Apple is offering a $1 million reward to anyone who can hack an iPhone as part of the company’s newly-expanded bug bounty program.

The tech giant’s head of security engineering Ivan Krsti recently shared the news at a conference in Las Vegas.

Previously, the program was invite-only and the highest reward was $200,000. And for the first time, the program will include all Apple platforms, including iOS, iCloud, tvOS, iPadOS, watchOS and macOS.

The full $1 million will go to a hacker who can gain full control of an iPhone without the phone’s owner interacting with it.

The company will pay out $1 million to security researchers that can carry out what is known as a zero-click full chain kernel execution attack with persistence.
