Watch: iOS 11 Beta Activation Lock Flaw Lets You Access Safari, Contacts, More
Our “Watch” series of articles continues today with a cool new video from the guys over at EverythingApplePro, who are showcasing an activation lock flaw in the latest iOS 11 Beta.
In the seven-minute long video, a guy from EverythingApplePro is showing us a security flaw that was recently discovered in the activation lock screen, which he tests on both an iPad and an iPhone device. It’s not the first time an iCloud bypass is found, but this one lets you do quite some things, kinda off.
The bug seems to be most effective on an iPad, and it activates if the user swipes up with his fingers from the bottom of the screen, which will bring up the new dock Apple implemented for iPad devices on iOS 11. Once the flaw is activated, it lets you browse YouTube or Safari, access the iCloud and Messages apps, though you won’t be able to login.
