Apple directed Github to remove the code since all codes are kept private to ensure consumer's privacy.

In a statement to Apple Insider, Apple said: "Old source code from three years ago appears to have been leaked, but by design the security of our products doesn't depend on the secrecy of our source code".

Thanks to the use of the Secure Enclave Processor chip in modern iPhones, jailbreaking iOS and accessing a phone's data has been made into an unattractive challenge by Apple.

However, according to the security researcher Will Strafach, for the end users it does not really mean anything positive or negative. That said, iBoot is highly sensitive code, and Apple apparently pays up to $200,000 under its bug bounty program to anyone who discovers bugs in the boot up procedure.

The code was for the outdated iOS 9, released in September 2015, but it is expected that parts of the code may still be in use underpinning the iPhone's security in later releases.
