The latest problem with iOS 6.1 involves the passcode lock. A glitch in the software allows someone to break into a passcode protected Apple iPhone using the method that is described in the video below. So we would expect to see iOS 6.1.2 very soon? Is that a yes? Until a fix is sent out, don't expect to completely safeguard your phone by using the passcode lock.

it is a "way" for those who had late to update the ios beta, so the users are force to update without being able to backup the phone content such as photos. contacts and messeges. by by passing screen lock code with "emergency call" method so then the users can itunes sync the iphone before doing updating/upgrading ios. i've read on macrumors/appleinsider some other days ago. and yes, they give a warn for latest ios user not being able to use the method because it might have found by apple. no haters guys, just try to read troubleshoot section on every phone os and manufactures.

Yeah, except that method doesn't work at all. Just tried it myself, no good anymore. Maybe you should test your sources if they're almost a year old, to see if they're valid before making sarcastic comments.

I don't see anything that proves that there is a "bug" in iOS making the lock code "unsafe". This is simply showing that even with a passcode on, they can still access contacts and make phone calls and take screen shots. Now if he were to be at the dial pad and press the home button and it went to the home screen instead of back to the lock screen, then I would consider that a security flaw.
I guess Apple purposely made this bug so that users are forced to update to iOS 6.1.2 or whatever, thereby removing the jailbreak status. Surely, losing the jailbreak is definitely better than losing the iphone -_-

Up to now, I still don't get how the iPhone gets 200 or so (apparently) NEW features with a major update to iOS. It's just so absurd. I mean, where's those 200 new features coz I don't see it. Stupid claims.
