I recently discovered an amazing trick about, ‘How to bypass the phone lock of iPhone 5’. Before we begin, I hereby tell you that this thing is solely for educational purpose, please don’t misuse it. So what we are going to need to execute this experiment, an iPhone 5 with iOS 6.1
Steps to follow:
Slide to unlock the device.
Hold the sleep button for about 3 seconds and then tap on the cancel that’ll appear on the bottom of the screen.
You’ll see that the top bar on the screen turning into blue. Now all you’ve to do is tap on the emergency call option appearing at the bottom and make an emergency call to whatever emergency number of your country. Cancel the call as soon as you call as we are not intending to ask 911 for help to bypass an iPhone :-p.
Once you are done with it, now you’ve to push sleep button and then again tap on the home button.
Now be careful for this step which is most important one. Hold the sleep button for 3 seconds and exactly on the 3rd second, tap on the emergency call & there you go, you are inside the victim’s phone. Note that you still need to hold the sleep button all the time you want to stay in.
However, Apple has resolved this vulnerability of the phone lock in the latest iOS 6.1.3, so this trick is not applied for the latest iOS 6.1.3. You can read more about it here ‘The New iOS 6.1.3 Fixes the Lock Screen Vulnerability of iPhone 5’.
