iOS 6.1 hack lets users see your phone app, place calls

Some sleight of hand will allow iOS 6.1 hackers to access your phone application, listen to your voice mails, and place calls.

A YouTube video showing users how to “bypass iPhone 5 passcode” on Apple’s latest iOS releases, including iOS 6.1, has been published. The person who uploaded the video shows how anyone can access the phone application on a passcode-protected iPhone.

In order to achieve the hack, users must come close to turning off the iPhone, place an emergency call, and keep their finger on the power button. We were able to re-create the hack with ease, and the YouTube user who uploaded the video provided step-by-step directions.

“For prank[ing] your friends, for a magic show. Use it as you want, at your own risk, but…please…do not use this trick to do evil,” “videosdebarraquito” posted on the YouTube page.

Apple said it is at work on a fix to the issue, but that it will require a software update.
