Today’s iOS 6.1.3 Release fixes the Lock Screen Security Flaw that many users have been reporting since iOS 6.1.
Video Demonstration of Lock Screen Security Flaw:
The lock screen security flaw allowed unauthorized users to access the phone app by bypassing the lock screen. Basically, the flaw meant that users could call people from lost or stolen iPhones. Not cool.
I hope iOS 6.1.3 also fixes a flaw that I have with callers hearing me speak when my iPhone battery has less than a 60% charge, and most importantly, my overall cell reception. Since iOS 6.1.0 release, the reception on my iPhone has been horrible. Not only have I missed basic sms messages, but I’ve also missed a few group sms messages sent by someone sitting less than 5 feet from me. It’s pretty sad. I’ve resorted to turning my phone completely off at night, letting it fully charge, and just praying that it finds a good cell tower in the morning.
Hopefully, this iOS 6.1.3 software release will be more friendly than other iOS 6.1 releases.
