You know what they say – a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and when it comes to Apple’s most recent version of their mobile operating system, iOS 6.1 is not exactly the best example of a secure operating system. It was just recently that Apple issued an iOS 6.1.1 update in order to fix a problem that plagued a handful of owners of the iPhone 4S, where they were left high and dry sans voice or data connectivity.
Vodafone had already warned its iPhone 4S customers to skip the iOS 6.1 update, as folks who ignored that warning or wanted to be an early adopter realized that their iPhone 4S was rendered as useful as a beautiful paperweight, being unable to make or receive calls, send or receive text messages as well as browse the Internet. As for the passcode lock, you can check out this software glitch in the video above, and we do hope that this would mean an iOS 6.1.2 update is in the pipeline, where it should be introduced soon if Apple knows what is good for them.
