Posted on May 6 2013 - 2:34pm by Muhammad Umer

Having the latest phone model would make you the envy of most people in your circle. Everyone would want to get hold of the latest released iPhone model but not everyone has the money to buy it. Whoever has the newest iPhone should be very careful with it, especially now that there is a newly discovered bug that allows people to see any open app while the phone is password protected. The good news about it, that not everyone can easily pull this trick off.

New Glitch In iOS 6

You can see any open app while the iPhone is pass code protected by two simple methods. The first one is without an internet connection and the second one is with an internet connection.

If you don’t have an access to internet you can follow the simple steps below to activate the glitch while the phone is locked:

  • Double tap the Home button to activate Siri (it will say Siri not available).
  • Now double tap the screen of your iPhone to see the app left opened in the background.

The second method is achieved when you have an internet connection, here’s how to do it:

  • Tap the Home button twice to activate Siri
  • Now here’s a tricky part, after activating Siri, tap both the Home button and Screen of your iPhone (one time) at the same time to see the app left open in the background.

Here’s a quick video that shows the glitch in action :) :

This glitch is dangerous for privacy conscious people because if you left your Messaging or Safari browser window left opened someone can view it by following the methods stated above. Just to make sure you remain not a victim, you must be very cautious and be aware of the people who have access to your phone.
