When it involves an upcoming iPhone launch, it’s straightforward to see how data tends to leak out. Apple’s provide chain, in spite of everything, is extremely huge. In flip, trusting provide chain companions and part suppliers to successfully hold a lid on new designs and options is just not practical at this level. iOS leaks, nonetheless, are a wholly completely different matter.

According to these sources, somebody bought it from distributors in China for 1000’s of {dollars}, after which extracted the iOS 14 inner construct and distributed it within the iPhone jailbreaking and hacking group.
