Apple To Release Fix For iOS 6.1 Security Issues Next Week [Rumor]


iPhone Self Improvement

Yesterday it was discovered that a bug in iOS 6.1 allows users to bypass the iPhone lockscreen without entering in the proper PIN. We’ve seen bugs like this in the past, and Apple has always been quick to shut them down.

Apple has already told us that they will fix the iOS 6.1 lockscreen bug in a future update, and according to a new rumor, that update will hit devices sometime next week.

iFun, the same site that correctly predicted the launch of iOS 6.1.1 for the iPhone 4s, has sources who confirmed the iOS 6.1.2 update will come out prior to February 20th.

Along with the lockscreen bug, there’s another bug in iOS 6.1 that is wreaking havoc for Microsoft Exchange. If you’ve been experiencing problems with Exchange, here’s a quick fix to help you out until Apple releases a true fix.

Unfortunately, there’s no fix for the lockscreen bug yet, so keep a close eye on your iPhone, or someone might discover those promiscuous Valentines pics you took last night.
