Unlock iPhone Passcode Screen Bug Fixed

apple-unlock-passcode-screen-bugDid you know there was a recent bug that allowed users to bypass the iPhone unlock screen without knowing the code?  Well, they quickly addressed this issue with the new update.  I haven’t seen too many details around that explain specifically how users were able to gain access to iPhones without the passcode, but I’m assuming it was some kind of a hack.  The new download is 18.2 mb and you can grab it now.  Check out Apple’s official update information below:
