A teenager is reported to have pleaded guilty to the Children’s Court in Melbourne in relation to allegedly hacking into Apple’s internal systems and downloading 90GB of files.
The teenager cannot be named for legal reasons.
The reports, carried by Melbourne newspaper The Age, said the Court heard that the Australian Federal Police executed a search warrant on the home where the teenage lived with his family last year.
The prosecution has alleged two Apple laptops seized during the search have serial numbers that matched the numbers of devices used to access Apple’s internal systems, with the IP address also allegedly matching, the report said.
The search warrant was obtained after Apple went to the FBI, which in turn passed the matter to the AFP.
The matter returns to Court for sentencing next month.
