How to Use iPhone's Lock Screen in iOS 12 to Access Contacts and Photos «iOS & iPhone :: Gadget Hacks



Apple may be proud of its commitment to user privacy and security, but it is not invulnerable. We now know that the latest release of iOS 12 and iOS 12.1 Beta includes a bug that allows connoisseurs to bypass their passcode and access contacts and photos. This applies to both Face ID and Touch ID enabled iPhones. We know exactly how to exploit the error.

On September 26, the YouTube account Videosdebarraquito posted two videos (in Spanish) that show how to bypass an iPhone that is locked by a passcode with iOS 12. This creator is also the one responsible for it is to discover earlier lock screen exploits. Soon after the new videos, the EverythingApplePro tech channel made its own video based on the information published by Videosdebarraquito.

You can see it below now, but it's a complicated process. To facilitate understanding, we've listed the steps needed to exploit the vulnerability under the video. So jump down to see them and follow the video.

Continue to display photos in Photo Gallery

  1. When you see an info button (i) next to one of the contacts, tap it once, tap twice anywhere on the screen. (We could not find any of our contacts with one (i) next to them, but you may be luckier.)
  2. Long press on the page to activate Siri. If you are using a Touch ID device, just press the Home button.
  3. Tell Siri that "VoiceOver should be disabled."

  7. Tap once on a contact.
  8. Tap once on the Contacts photo icon where "Add Photo" is available, then tap "Select Photo" once from the pop-up window. You will not be able to see any photos at this time.
  9. Long press on the Side button to activate Siri. If it is a Touch ID device, just press the Home button.
  10. Tell Siri to "Activated VoiceOver".
  11. Slowly swipe up from the bottom of the screen until you feel vibration to exit the Siri screen on the photo page (which looks like the contact page). If it is a Touch ID device, just click the Home button once.

  21. You can now view the photo in high resolution but with a translucent black around the main circle of the image selector.

As mentioned above in the instructions to see the complete contact list in the correct order, as well as photos on the device, you need to see the "i" button next to a contact displayed in step 16. If "i" does not exist, you only have access to the contact lists with that particular number in them.

As with most security-related bugs, we expect Apple to release a software update as soon as possible. Make sure that "Software Update" is often enabled in the "General" settings if you want to protect your iPhone from this error. If you've enabled iOS 12's new " Automatic Updates", you're ready.
