iOS 6.1 lockscreen security flaw, Apple says fix is on the way.
A new flaw in the iOS 6.1 lockscreen has appeared, and although it's a bit more complicated than the iPad 2 Smart Cover flaw. The flaw involves making and immediately canceling an emergency call and holding down the Sleep/Wake button twice. It's a bit complex, so if you want to replicate it watch the above video and follow along with the below steps.
The flaw doesn't allow you to access much, but you can see contacts, make calls, and view photos.
Apple has already said that a fix will come in the next software update, along with the fix for the iExchange bug. Apple spokeswoman Trudy Mulle responded to AllThingsD with the following statement:
Apple takes user security very seriously. We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update.
Replicate the flaw with the steps below:
- Lock your iPhone by pressing the Sleep/Wake button
- Press the Home button to wake the device and then perform the slide-to-unlock gesture
- Tap the Emergency Call button
- Now hold the Sleep/Wake button until the power down slider appears
- Tap Cancel
- When the status bar turns blue, punch in ’911′ or your emergency number
- Tap the Call button and then immediately cancel the call
- Hit the Sleep/Wake button to lock your iPhone
- Turn it back on by pressing the Home button
- Now perform the slide-to-unlock gesture again
- Hold the Sleep/Wake button and after 3 seconds tap the Emergency Call button
