Apple to launch iOS 6.1.2 next week to fix major security issue

Apple’s promised fix for an iOS 6.1 bug that enables intruders to by-pass a user’s passcode and access certain areas of the phone, could be released this week. According to a report, Apple will release iOS 6.1.2 within the next week.

The follow-up version, iOS 6.1.1 released last week, introduced a bunch of new issues. Not only did the initial release introduce the security issues and battery problems, in addition to a wallop of a 3G connectivity bug for iPhone 4S users. The iPhone users are still reporting Exchange connectivity bugs, so severe that Microsoft is suggesting affected devices be booted from the server so as not to slow down the rest of the network.

There is a video online showing how a complex series of button pushes could nullify the passcode and unlock photo albums, calling logs, voicemail and enable the hacker to modify contacts. iOS 6.1.2 would resolve at least a couple of glitches introduced with version 6.1.

Apple has acknowledged the problem, which is almost identical to one which surfaced in 2010, and said it is swiftly working on a fix.
