Apple Releases the iOS 7.0.2 Update to Fix Lockscreen Bugs
>Lockscreen glitches are iPhone’s recurring problems and sometimes introduced along with major updates. The newly released iOS 7.0.2 update is designed to solve this. It was discovered last week that hackers can bypass a locked down iPhone unit by opening the emergency dialer and pressing the call button rapidly. This will freeze the iOS 7 and reboot the device. Unauthorized users can call premium and international numbers; and stick the original device owners with the bill.
Hackers may also hold down the power button while in the timer app and then cancel the shutdown option to access the multitasking menu. They can go into the camera roll to edit, delete or send photos to different social networking sites.
Users can perform manual iOS 7.0.2 update by accessing Settings > General and then Software Update.
Other than providing fix to security bugs, the update now allows Greek characters to be used as passcode. We will soon know whether the iOS 7.0.2 fix these bugs for good. With repeated issues and the introduction of fingerprint scanning, some have predicted that lockscreen on iOS devices will go the way of the dodo.
