iPhone: flaw allows hackers to bypass passcode

Jose Rodriguez, who has previously discovered several iPhone flaws in the past, has recently released a way to bypass the passcode request in Apple’s latest iOS version 12.

According to The Hacker News, the targeted iPhone needs to have Siri enabled and Face ID, either disabled or physically covered, to reveal the flaw to a possible hacker. Once these requirements are granted, the attacker has to step through a difficult process and eventually access contacts, Camera Roll and other photo folders.
