iPhone

A problem has been revealed in the latest Apple IOS 13 update, which was made available to users Thursday.

According to a report in CNN business, the flaw, which Apple Inc. has reportedly been aware of since July, exposes contact information that’s stored in iPhones without requiring a passcode or biometric identification.

In simpler terms, a hacker would need physical access to an iPhone to complete the hack, but once it is in their possession, they could bypass Apple security features, such as facial I.D.

In response to a cyber-security enthusiasts’ concern in early July, Apple Inc. has confirmed that the exploit is supposed to be fixed in the next IOS update 13.1, which is scheduled for release Tuesday, September 24. The original release date was supposed to be the following Monday, September 30.
