Did 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:
