Apple recently released their 9.3.1 software update, the update was designed to fix some minor issues on the iPhone and iPad, mainly to do with activation on older devices.
Now a new flaw has been discovered in iOS 9.3.1 and unfortunately this one could let someone access your photos on your iPhone without having to put in your passcode.
The issue apparently only affects the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus handsets that are running iOS 9.3.1 and gaining access to the photos can be done by following the steps in the video below.
There is way to stop this happening on your iPhone 6S or 6S plus, what you need to do is top Siri from having access to your photos.
This can be done by going to Settings > Privacy > Photos and then disabling Siri. You can also protect yourself further from this flaw by stopping Siri running on the Lock Screen, this can be done by going to Settings > TouchID & Passcode and disabling Siri.
Apple has not revealed when a fix for this new flaw is coming to the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, it should be patched in a future update, as soon as we get some more details we will let you guys know.
