There is a simple but yet complicated way to access a user’s personal photos and contact list stored on iOS devices running iOS 9 and iOS 9.0.1. The hacker has explained that, the lock screen bypass on iOS depends on Apple’s personal assistant Siri.
The hack can be done on devices running on iOS 9 and iOS 9.0.1 in less than 30 seconds. Here are the step by step procedures to bypass the pass code;
Enter an incorrect pssscode four (4) times on the Apple device running iOS 9.
Depending on the length of your passcode, for the fifth attempt enter 3 or 5 digits and for the last one, press and hold the Home button to run Siri immediately followed by the 4th digit.
Once Siri appears, ask the assistant for the time.
Tap the Clock icon to open the Clock app, and add a new Clock, then write anything in the Choose a City field.
Now double tap on the word you wrote to invoke the copy & paste menu, Select All and then click on “Share”.
Tap the ‘Message’ icon in the Share Sheet, and again type something random, hit Return and double tap on the contact name on the top.
Select “Create New Contact,” and Tap on “Add Photo” and then on “Choose Photo”.
At this point, you’ll now be able to access the entire photo library on the iOS device, which is still locked with a passcode. Now browse and view any photo from the Photo album individually.
Since the lock screen bypass vulnerabilities dependencies is based on Siri, iOS users can disable Siri on he lockscreen by modifying the settings on the device by going to
settings > Touch IS & Passcode.
Once done, users can be able to use Siri after the unlocking iOS 9 based device.
