Apple release the iOS 6.1.3 update for its mobile devices just to fix the lockscreen bug that had created a huge dent in the tech giant's image. However, within a day's time Apple has got another lockscreen but that is going to haunt its iOS developers and testers until the next iOS version is not released.
The new lockscreen flaw is not as responsive as the earlier one; however it does let another person have a look at your contacts and pictures.
The flaw was seen in a YouTube video posted on March 20. In the video the user is involved in a very tedious process using the voice call for an emergency call and interrupting the call in between by removing the SIM.
The bug has a very limited access as the person using it can just reach the address book of the phone and to add a picture to the profile of a contact the person can also access the pictures in the gallery of the phone.
A report from Apple Insider claims that the bug works only in the devices that don't have Siri function. "It appears that the flaw is limited to iPhones without Siri support, as AppleInsider was not able to reproduce the behavior on an iPhone 5," the report suggests.
With the new bug appearing, the users of iPhones will surely be confused to update their devices to iOS 6.1.3 update, especially those who have jailbroken their iPhones.
Since the lockscreen bug stay with iPhones with iOS 6.1.3 or without it, there is no point in installing the update as it patches the evasi0n untethered jailbreak.
The iOS 6.1.3 also makes the iDevices un-downgradable once it is installed and the users just can't go back to the earlier version of iOS they were using.
The whole development indicates towards only one thing that Apple is soon going to release either an update to iOS 6 that is going to be iOS 6.14 or the company will wait for some more time and bring out a whole new version of iOS (iOS 7).
Whatever the update number might be, the users of iPhone are really looking forward to something that can bring a good and stable solution to their lockscreen miseries.
