The announcement of the search for engineers was posted on LinkedIn by Elad Wertheimer, who is responsible for Apple's talent search. Apple's Dev Center will be involved in several Israeli-led flagship projects, including "future Mac processors," Wertheimer said.

Apple already operates two R&D centers in Herzliya and Haifa. Apple's senior vice president of hardware technology, Johnny Srouji, an Israeli native, was responsible for setting up local development centers that now employ about 2,000 people.

Srouji noted that thanks to Israeli developments, Apple manages and optimizes data storage technology in a number of devices: it introduces wireless components into the Apple Watch, as well as integrated circuits. In addition, the Israeli team played a central role in the development of the company's flagship M1 processor, including the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, designed to power Mac computers such as the MacBook Pro and MacBook Studio.

Apple has significantly expanded its presence in Israel since 2011, focusing on the development, testing and design of silicon and semiconductor devices.

Earlier, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology outlined a PACMAN attack scenario, which is possible due to a hardware vulnerability in the Apple M1 series processors. If implemented successfully, PACMAN allows an attacker to gain access to the OS kernel and gives full control over the attacked device, the researchers say. This vulnerability in the processor cannot be corrected by software.
