Merely, everyone knows that Apple’s security has a tenacious grip over its users for many years and the iPhone maker has been accentuating that its products have been maintaining a high level of protection functions, and keeping the statement at any cost.

To strengthen this statement, Apple said Wednesday that it will roll out a historical security feature to stop muddling along the latent blindspot of government and make users’ iPhones safer than before, especially for people who work under various threats such as human rights workers, lawyers, politicians, journalists, etc.

These people might encounter digital threats and can get over them by installing the “lockdown mode” on their iPhones. The iPhone maker said it would be rolling out the new “Lockdown Mode” in trial versions of its operating systems very soon, with full circulation in the assembly as part of iOS 16 for iPhones and also to operating systems for iPads and Mac computers.

While the vast majority of users will never fall victim to a highly targeted cyberattack, we will work tirelessly to protect a small number of users. This includes continuing to design defenses specifically for these users, And supporting the vital work of researchers and organizations around the world in uncovering the mercenary companies behind these digital attacks. – Ivan Krstić, Apple’s head of security engineering and architecture

In addition, the company aims to offer a high level of protection to a very limited number of individuals who wouldn’t work under surveillance, and also people who might not appreciate being seen in the digital trends but are very sensitive to digital threats, they could be normalized for what they do, howbeit they may become some of the most quintessential digital threats individuals targets, including threats from NSO Group and other private companies developing state-sponsored spyware for hire.

The company also has the forethought to broaden the lockdown mode. Furthermore, Apple has officially announced a hefty bounty hunt of up to 2 million dollars for those who scrutinize every bit of the features and find the security vulnerabilities in new features. Eventually, Apple officials said that they are planning to offer $10 million to the Dignity and Justice Fund, which will certainly help motivate more research on these issues.
