iOS 7 was released to the public a couple of weeks ago and as expected with most releases, there will be a couple of teething problems that can be expected, especially since the software will be used by millions around the world, leading to various bugs that could have been missed during the beta. One of the bugs involved a lock screen vulnerability that has since been patched with iOS 7.0.2, although it turns out in the process of fixing the bug, a new bug was discovered which pretty much allowed a hacker to gain access to various aspects of your phone even if it is protected by a passcode.
The process is not one that will be known by most, and it’s probably one you might not have figured out, but if you check out the video above, it certainly looks like it can be done. In any case we expect Apple is probably well aware of this bug by now and is probably working on an update that will fix it, so if you’re an iPhone user, you can expect another minor update to address this bug in the near future. In the meantime you can check out the video above to see the bug in action.
