iOS 7 Bug Allows Anyone to Make Calls from Locked iPhone

The iOS 7 was launched by Apple recently. Besides the lock screen bug a second bug has just been discovered. This bug allows anyone to make calls from a locked iPhone with the slightest amount of adjustment. Karam Daoud, a Palestinian let the authorities know of this fact. All he did was enter the emergency call screen of a locked iPhone and dial a number. 

The next thing he did was punch the green call button again and again. Ultimately, the button got jammed and the system crashed to a white Apple insignia on a black background. And the call got transmitted. This was demonstrated on both the iPhone 5S and the iPhone 4S. 

While this furtive operation requires material access to an iPhone, it does not need any access to knowledge regarding what is inside the iPhone. Whatever the case, this glitch in the system is problematic and will be addressed by Apple shortly. 

It is a common phenomenon that the first time some new system comes on the scene there are teething troubles that it has to face. The whole technology is still an emergent liability and there are no guarantees that it will function flawlessly in the real world. Apple looks forward to bridging this gap in the iOS 7 although it will take some effort on its part.
