Happy Friday everyone…
…well not for Apple because it’s been bought to my attention that the Apple iOS 6.1 has a security flaw which allows users to bypass the lock screen.
Don’t believe me? Check out this video!
Apple have announced that they are aware of this issue and are going to be releasing an update (aka patch!) which will ensure this problem does not happen.
Such a problem has happened previously on the iPad iOS 5.0 which saw security being breached by following a simple process using the Smart Cover. This problem was ‘quickly’ resolved in iOS 5.0.1 but it does make me laugh when Apple could let such a security flaw occur twice in two software releases.
Don’t get me wrong, I completely understand that nothing in technology is ever ‘perfect’; but when you’re dealing with one of the biggest companies in the world, you’d expect a little but more. Many people know I’m not Apple’s biggest fan but do admit that they have changed the way we all live our lives with the devices they have made; however I still stand by the fact that there are plenty of other devices out there which do the same, and at times, are better than Apple.
Until next time everyone, have a great weekend.
