Got fancy new iOS 7 on that iPhone of yours? Beware. There's a super simple bug that can let anyone blow right by your lockscreen and look through your pictures, and even share them.
The process was discovered by Jose Rodriguez, and even though it has quite a few steps, it's super easy to master. Here's how it works:
- Swipe up on the locked phone to get to the control panel
- Open the stopwatch app
- Go over to alarm clock
- Hold the power button until you get the "Power down" prompt
- Hit the cancel button and immediately hit the home button twice, holding it down just a little longer on the second press. Like, buh-baah. It takes a try or two to get the hang of.
Then, bam, you're in the target's multitasking menu and can start goofing around. If you go to the camera app, you'll be treated to unrestricted access to the Photo Stream, and can share the pictures from there with email, Twitter, and more. It's pretty scary. This isn't the first time a bug like this has showed up in iOS either. Hopefully it's the last.
