It seems that a security flaw in iOS 6.1 could allow anyone to unlock the iPhone screen without having any knowledge of the unlock code or password. In this way, anyone could access the phone’s applications, view or modify contacts, check emails, or manage entries on social networks.
The discovery, as published by another online medium “The Verge”, is based on a video uploaded to YouTube by a user posing as videosdebarraquito. As can be seen in the video, during the process it is necessary to make a call to an emergency number, and the operator answers in Spanish.
This is not the first time that this has happened, since a similar error occurred previously in the version of iOS 4.1, which was fixed with the update of iOS 4.2.
