New lockscreen bypass discovered in iOS 6.1.3
A new lockscreen bypass has been discovered in iOS 6.1.3, notes <em>iPhoneinCanada</em>. Unlike the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281517==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/02/25/could.allow.pulling.data.via.usb/" rel='nofollow'>tricks discovered in iOS 6.1</a>, the new one appears to affect only the iPhone 4. It also, unusually, involves popping out an iPhone's SIM card while using Voice Control to dial an emergency number.<br />
<br />
The hack was first exposed in a YouTube video, and has been <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/281518==http://www.iphoneincanada.ca/ios/confirmed-ios-6-1-3-has-another-passcode-security-flaw/" rel='nofollow'>tested</a> by <em>iPhoneinCanada</em>. Once past the lockscreen, users can access contacts and photos. An easy way of disabling the hack, however, involves turning Voice Dial off in the Passcode Lock menu under Settings.<br />
<br />
iOS 6.1.3, released just yesterday, was itself meant to disable lockscreen bypasses. It's believed to have solved both hacks in v6.1.<br />

I mean seriously ejecting the SIM card while dialing Emergency? Why would anyone even th9ink of doing that?

This is ridiculous
OK - if it's an even-numbered Tuesday, and you swing a dead chicken over your head while dancing the Hokey-Pokey backwards - you can bypass the lock screen. Jeez...get a life, people. I don't even have a passcode on my iPhone or my iPad. If you think there's something really interesting in there, knock yourself out.
