It is common knowledge that Apple will only present its new software in June, on the occasion of WWDC. This year will be no different, with the official presentation of iOS 14 taking place next June 22.
However, it is now known that an initial version of iOS 14 has been circulating on the Internet since February this year. The motherboard publishes this data, which had a copy of the software in its possession.
Apparently, this version of iOS 14 was found last December, in China, installed on an iPhone 11. The contours of this discovery are not clear, but some people are on Twitter promoting this compilation.
This version didn’t give us any clues as to what to expect from the new iOS 14
According to what is being reported, this initial build of iOS 14 has been going through journalists, bloggers and others since February. The compilation in question dates from December 10, 2019, so it is natural that a lot may have already changed.
Although this software has passed through many hands, it is curious that the leaks related to the news of iOS 14 have not reported this compilation as a source. It may be out of fear of reprisals or else no one is truly confident that what it contains can make it to the final version.
Additionally, a security company says it is not confident that this previous access to iOS 14 can facilitate the jailbreak processes that may occur in the future. Still, it is possible that many of those who do these processes have already had contact with the software.
Apple will not be pleased with this huge leak
Apple is a company that highly values the secrecy surrounding its projects in development. Therefore, it is not surprising that those responsible are not at all happy with this event.
According to Will Strafach, who used to jailbreak and now owns the Guardian Firewall security app, Apple is very focused on this issue. However, at the time of writing this article, the American company has not yet commented on the matter.
It should be remembered that Apple does not tend to be soft with those who deliberately disclose inside information ahead of time. In such cases, it is customary for technology to seek retribution from those who facilitated the spread of information.
An even more extreme account comes from San Francisco and a man who says he was threatened by Apple security guards disguised as police in that city. At stake was the discovery of a prototype of an iPhone, in 2011, on the floor of a bar in the American city.
