If the idea of someone bypassing your lock screen — even with an overly tedious combination of taps and swipes — makes you nervous, you’re going to want to make sure to get the latest software update for iOS 6.
On Tuesday Apple (s aapl) pushed out iOS 6.1.3, which fixes a bug that could allow someone to access a locked iPhone even without knowing the phone’s password. The security flaw was discovered in February by an iPhone owner, who then posted his findings to YouTube. Apple acknowledged the bug at the time and said it would be fixed in a software update.
iOS 6.1.3 update also included various but unspecified « improvements » to the Apple Maps app for users in Japan.
