Apple has released iOS 7.0.2 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, a minor but an important security update for its mobile operating system that fixes a lock screen bug.
The bug was was allowing anyone to bypass the lock screen without any passcode. The exploit remained in news in the last week and Apple was quick to solve the issue. Other than that, the update also reintroduces a Greek keyboard option for passcode entry.
The new software update is released just after one week of iOS 7 public release.
The users found a way to use the new Control Center feature to bypass any iOS device’s passcode. This in result gives access to Mail, Photos and other applications.
With the release of iOS 7.0.2, the Cupertino based company has fixed the bug. The company has earlier confirmed that they have identified the issue and working on a fix.
This is not the very first time we have witnessed a security bug related to passcode and lock screen. But the good thing is that Apple is always quick to address these vulnerabilities.
All you need to do is to go to Settings > General > Software Update and install a small download in order to get updated to the latest operating system.
