Just when you thought your iPhone was safe and locked from people, think again.
According to PC Magazine, the new iOS 6.1 has a bug that allows people to bypass your locked screen. A YouTube user demonstrates how the new iOS can be used without the 4 digit password and can be used with full access to your iPhone.
"Easy trick that allows bypass an iPhone's passcode and get full access (see and edit) to contacts list, list of recent calls, favorite contacts, and even make a call to any phone number on the hacked device and erase the log," the original YouTube video description said.
Apple has put out a new version of the software, 6.1.1, and urges users to download it so they don’t go through this issue, reports The Washington Post.
“Apple takes user security very seriously,” said Apple spokeswoman Trudy Miller. “We are aware of this issue and will deliver a fix in a future software update.”
"For prank your friends… For a magic show… Use it as you want, at your own risk, but… please… do not use this trick to do evil!!!" the YouTube poster wrote.
