The Lock Screen Password Is Avoidable Even On iOS 6.1.3!

Apple released iOS 6.1.3 yesterday, an update to fix security issues in previous versions, through which it was possible to bypass the lock screen password and access sensitive contents of the device. However, despite this upgrade it is still possible.

Lock Screen Password

Yesterday’s update to iOS 6.1.3 does not seem to have had the desired effect. We reported in yesterday’s article: iOS 6.1.3 contains a fix to a problem that allowed people to bypass the lock screen code and further improvements were made in the maps application with regard to Japan.”

It was an update aimed at fixing a single bug, which obviously failed in his aim. Andrea Barbaini posted a video on YouTube that shows that the problem has not been resolved and by a simple procedure you can access the phone supposedly “locked”, which we know contains a variety of sensitive personal and private information.

Below, we publish the video shows the method to unlock the terminal even if its password protected.

The only way to protect your device from Lock Screen password bug is to disable the Voice Controls, thus inhibiting the ability to use it.
