iOS 7 security flaw found, probably doesn't matter

0. phoneArena 12 Jun 2013, 22:07 posted on

iOS 7 beta has been in the hands of users for just over two days now and there has already been a security flaw found in the system. The security flaw is in the same spot as most iOS security flaws: the lockscreen. Of course, given that this is beta software, and isn't due for full release until the fall, this security flaw probably doesn't matter at all...

Beta 1 should be flawed.

Yes, and this is one of the main reasons why beta versions are released...to learn and to improve the final version

It is pretty buggy. I installed for a bit and while i did like it, My iMessages wouldn't turn on and neither would FaceTime. Thats the main reason i decided to revert back to iOS 6. Also, i wouldn't get push notifications from apps like twitter or Facebook which upset me. Also the mailbox app was very buggy. Nonetheless, i liked how it was laid out. While it will be buggy since its the first beta, i'm looking forward to the next couple betas. I feel its going to be pretty good once they iron out all the bugs and finish it up.

The only buggy feel I have found on my iPhone 5 is in the music app. Facetime works just fine for me. Heck it will allow me to place calls over cellular on my ATT Unlimited plan.

Facebook works for me just fin and so does Mail. Messages coming in just fine on exchange.

Maybe its because i have a 4s? Idk. But push notifications wouldn't come through and the things just wouldn't activate. Plus during emails, when i'd try to delete more than 2 at a time it'd crash.

"assuming you're finding it worthwhile to stick with iOS 7 and not downgrade back to iOS 6."

Didn't they say devices upgraded to 7 couldnt be restored back to 6?

okay it's possible to rollback. Whatever I had been reading was inaccurate.

It's possible to go back. I did it with ease.

Based on past scenarios, they shouldn't fix that. I have checked a lot of iOS 7 Beta 1 reviews on YouTube and there is so many bugs, it even lags.

Beta 1. What do you expect? It's the gold master that counts, as a techie you should know that. You're more of an apple hater than a techie though, since I never see where you talk tech...only anti apple stuff.

Do you remember the situation with Apple Maps, they will fix it, blah, blah, blah, they will fix it blah, blah, blah and they didn't! And I'm not even talking about the last iOS 6 updates...

Yes, I hate Apple as a company.

I talk about tech what I see and what I think, no "fanboyism".

Apple maps had been fixed for so long, that's a moot point.

"Beta 1. What do you expect?"

The whole point is that they introduced Apple Maps as final product, but in reality Apple Maps was not finished and almost unusable. And I think that the same will happen with iOS 7, so I don't care if it is Pre-Alpha, Alpha, Beta 1, Beta 2, RC or even Final Release...

it is not about fixing, the whole point is that they introduced Apple Maps as final product, but in reality Apple Maps was not finished and almost unusable.

Also the question is not whether it works or not, but how it works...

Beta. This is the purpose of it, to find and fix bugs. These sorts of lockscreen bugs weren't discovered in the last version until it was public.

Operating systems are complex, coded by teams on different sections. It would be impossible to not have some bugs or holes.
