Yet another passcode bug found in iOS 6.1

 Another iOS 6.1 passcode has been found, unfortunately. This one again taking advantage of the emergency call screen, containing a specific and precise pressing of seemingly random buttons. The above video takes you through how this bug is exploited, which ends with the user/hacker having to keep the power button pressed in order to do any damage. Once let go, the user must go back through the steps to access the device. This is the second passcode bug found in a matter of a month and a half at most, but the first is fixed in the iOS 6.1.3 beta. Hopefully Apple will pay closer attention to its emergency call screen after this, because that is where most these bugs seem to originate.

What do you think? Hope Apple squashes this bug next? Concerned over how these bugs keep popping up? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
