How To Bypass iOS 7 Lockscreen

Lock Screen Bypass

UPDATE: Some users are reporting that the following exploit is not working on their devices. Keep that in mind, but it’s worth a try.

Just a day after iOS 7 was officially released to the public, a lock screen exploit has been  discovered that allows anyone to view photos on any locked device running the new operating system.

The bypass was discovered by Jose Rodriguez, a 36-year-old soldier living in Spain’s Canary Islands. Rodriguez then contacted Forbes staff writer Andy Greenberg who then made the bug known to the public.

Obviously this is a huge story line for Apple considering that they have just released both hardware and firmware with heavy emphasis on security. Until Apple releases a fix, this bug can easily be prevented by disabling access to control center from the lock screen, this can be done by accessing “settings,” then “control center.”

 How To Bypass iOS 7 Lock Screen

  1. Swipe up to activate control center
  2. Launch the calculator by tapping the quick launch icon
  3. Hold lock/sleep button until “slide to power off” appears
  4. Tap “cancel” then immediately press the home button twice (second press hold for half a second)
  5. Application switcher should activate
  6. The camera app will now be available to open
