Apple is to release iOS 6.1.2 early this week in a bid to fix exhance and lock screen passcode bugs. Shortly after the release of iOS 6.1 it became apparant that a major security flaw allowed basically anybody with a spare couple of minutes to slip through the passcode system and access a device's confidential and supposedly secure data. The release of iOS 6.1.1 last week that fixed lingering cellular and battery issues with the iPhone 4S is also susceptible to this security flaw.
An urgent update is required from Apple to sort the mess out and according to iFun this should happen early this week. Whenever Apple releases a new software update, users are quick to check it out and report any issues that they find. When it comes to security issues though, users are less likely to forgive these mistakes. The major security flaw was discovered last Wednesday.
Apple has always prided itself on its high level of security in its software product so a new update being released so soon was always likely. It isn't known at this stage whether the untethered Evasi0n jailbreak will also be patched with this new update but hopefully with all the fuss and rushing with this new update they won't spoil things just yet. Apple have already acknowledged the Exchange problem and they are said to have people working around the clock to prepare a suitable fix for this. There is no official date for the release of iOS 6.1.2 but as always, as soon as we have any news we will let you know.
