iPhones Not Secure

There are lot of issues regarding bugs in the Apple’s new iPhone. iOS 6.1 has been disappointing so far and its difficult to keep your phone secure because of its passcode bypass loophole. Hackers can explore contacts, photos and a lot of stuff by following a series of steps; the only thing is that they need to have access to the phone.

There are two ways of getting cracking into the phone without having the passcode all you need is access to the phone. Users can call 911 or 112 on the phone and then disconnect it while switching the power on and off to get limited access to the phone. Both the ways have been illustrated in the video below; please use it as awareness to check whether your phone is still vulnerable or not after the next update and not for getting access to peoples iPhone without their permission.
