There’s a video purporting to show that users can hack into an iPhone with Apple’s new iOS 9 update, allowing people to access a person’s contacts and photos.
AppleInsider reported that Jose Rodriguez, a man who found a security flaw in iOS 6.1.3 two years ago, discovered this error as well. Additionally, the report said that tests were conducted with the iOS 9.01 update and the iOS 9.1 beta, but the fix hasn’t been made yet, according to the AppleInsider. The Telegraph has reported that the newest update has made the fix.
The issue comes when a person types into an iPhone at the unlock screen, but then quickly activates Siri. When that happens, the lock screen appears to be bypassed and the individual has free reign into the person’s phone.
