Apple today issued a new iOS update for iPhone users that stops would be thieves from bypassing your phone’s lock screen. It’s not the first time Apple has slipped up and left the equivalent of a gaping hole hidden in the lock screen. Hopefully, it’s the last.
That said, iOS 6.1.3 is available now as an OTA (over the air) update. It also includes some minor updates for Apple maps in Japan only.
If you’re wondering what the lock screen vulnerability looked like, and how to access it (on your device), checkout the video below.
