iOS 7 security update patches lockscreen flaw
Apple last week released an iOS 7 software update fixing a security flaw that let users bypass the iPhone lockscreen to access a range of onboard information and online accounts.
IOS 7.0.2 seems to be mainly a security patch, but the update screen also says there is a new Greek alphabet keyboard option for entering a passcode.
A day after iOS 7 was released earlier this month, Forbes’ Andy Greenberg reported that a US soldier had somehow uncovered a rather complex series of actions that let him bypass the lockscreen, at least on existing iPhones that updated to the new firmware.
