It’s been two days since Apple released iOS 7 to the public and in that time two bugs have already been discovered in the new mobile OS. The first one is where you can bypass the Passcode via a Control Center bug, which we posted about yesterday. The second one, which was discovered late last night, allows you to make calls from a locked iPhone, without having to unlock it. Tap some buttons and you can place a call, don’t worry about that passcode.
This bug was first discovered by Karam Daoud, who then reported it to Forbes. The bug lies in the Emergency Call function of iOS 7, which is displayed when there’s a Passcode lock. To place a call, all you need to do, is go the Emergency Call screen, dial a number and continuously tap on the call button till your phone crashes and displays the Apple logo. While it is showing a black screen with the Apple logo, the call goes through and once the restart is complete, it shows the duration. Here’s the video demonstrating the same:
According to Karam, this bug is present in the older iPhone’s running iOS 7 as well. This isn’t as bad as the first bug, but it is shameful for Apple. Karam wrote to Apple regarding this bug and they did revert back to him saying that it will be fixed in an upcoming software update.
There’s no fix to this as of now, but we will let you know when there is one or if we hear about it from Apple. Till then, go try to prank your friends with this trick.
