Flawed? iPhone 5 and iPhone 4 with the iOS 6.1.3 Shows Passcode Bug Again?
Not again? A new video reveals that the new security update for the iPhone 5 and other iOS devices is still “flawed.”
Article written by Kevin Go – Following the onslaught of security passcode locks plaguing the the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2 and previous build of Apple’s iOS 6.1 mobile operating system, it appears that the latest version meant to remedy the aforementioned security flaw on the iOS platform is not as effective as everyone had thought.Read past the break to find out more.
New reports surrounding the iPhone 4 and Apple’s latest flagship, the iPhone 5, are pointing at a new passcode lock screen bypass method found on the iOS version 6.1.3.
The previous flaw required some strategic ‘finger dance moves’ done to the lock scree but this time, things are a tad bit trickier. Unauthorized users will have to perform a Voice Dial command then swiftly ejecting the SIM card off the phone, as a result, the recent call history will be revealed letting the person access your iPhone’s contacts — wait! We’re not yet past the peril here.
Once the user has gained access to the contacts list, he will also be able to browse the photos stored in your smartphone by simply trying to add a new contact and choosing a new contact photo. As we have mentioned, this issue appears to only affect the iPhone 4 and iPhone 5, we’re yet to give it a try on the iPhone 4S (if we can find where one of our writers hid it), now’s the best time to disable the Voice Dialer of your iPhone if you don’t want your parents or your other half to see what you really did when you pulled an “all nighter”.
