1 min read

This Thursday, iPhone issued a problem in its new operating system iOS 13 where persons contact details can be stored in iPhone without his permission by giving any bio-metric verification or pass codes. At first, this bug was reported in July by one iPhone user.

This is a security breach where hacker can access ones contacts information in address book and can also access recent call logs by just having a possession of a phone.

Jose Rodriguez, a cyber security fan, living in the Canary Islands, contacted Apple on July 3rd telling that he had found a “pass code bypass” and asked if his conclusions would be qualified for an Apple Security Bounty — a program that rewards security researchers who bring bugs to Apple’s attention

Rodriguez said that Apple heard his advises on time and he was contacted by company’s researchers many times just to discuss that vulnerability on beta version on iOS 13.

Having a doubt, Apple would take to fix the issue as long as it would release a new version of iOS.

It’s confirmed that this issue would be fixed by next version of upcoming iOS 13.1 which is due to be released on September 24th.
