iOS 6.1 bug allows anyone to get past your lockscreen and make calls
It seems that iOS 6.1 issues just aren't ending. After we informed earlier this week that Apple has released a small update that fixes iPhone 4S connectivity issues, it seems that another bug has been discovered.
Apparently any iPhone with the latest iOS 6.1 update which has been locked by a passcode can be made to make an emergency call, be cancelled immediately and then restarted, which then gives access to the Phone app. This in turn allows access to the keypad, allowing anyone to make any call anywhere, plus your entire contacts list as well.
The video above clearly demonstrates this bug being exploited very easily on the iPhone 5. "We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update," Apple has told All Things D. Hopefully the fix is out soon. In the meantime, don't leave your iPhone lying around in the open.
