iOS 6.1 Passcode Bug Fix In The Works By Apple

Yesterday we heard about the iOS 6.1 passcode bug, which allowed anyone to have access to your iPhone without the need for a passcode, the bug would give access after a certain sequence of steps were performed on a locked iPhone.

Now it would appear that Apple has acknowledged the iOS 6.1 passcode bug and they have now confirmed that a fix for the passcode bug will be released in a software update.

Apple said it is hard at work on a fix. “Apple takes user security very seriously” spokeswoman Trudy Muller told AllThingsD. “We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update.”

This is not the first bug that has been discovered in iOS 6.1, earlier in the week we heard about a bug related to 3G on the iPhone 4S, this was fixed by Apple when they release the iOS 6.1.1 software update for the iPhone 4S.

As soon as we get some more information on when Apple intend to release a software update to fix the iOS 6.1 passcode bug we will let you guys know.
