Apple is offering hackers up to $200,000 to find security loopholes in its products, the company announced on Thursday, as it joins a number of major technology firms that have so-called "bug bounty programs".
The amount researchers are paid are based on the severity of the flaw they find. The lowest reward is for $25,000, going up to $200,000.
It's one of the biggest rewards in the industry. Uber for example offers hackers up to $10,000 while Google's maximum prize pot is $20,000.
The program will be invite-only to begin with and potential hackers will be chosen from a group of experts who have previously made security flaws known to Apple. To get their reward, researchers will need to provide a proof-of-concept to Apple.
