Apple rolls out iOS 7.0.2 update in order to fix the lockscreen problem

Apple has officially rolled out the iOS 7.0.2 update for its latest operating system. The iOS 7.0.2 update will fix the lockscreen issue that allowed users to get unauthorized access to iOS devices.

We were all excited to check out the public release of Apple iOS 7 (we had already been using the beta versions), and that day had finally arrived. But just days after iOS consumers all around the world started downloading and installing the next-gen operating system, a number of problems started surfacing.

One of the most important bugs were being discussed by the users at xda-developers forum was the lockscreen bypassing. On properly following a number of steps, any user could get access to many of the features of an iOS device without having to input the password. A number of consumers actually tried it out and confirmed the same.

iOS 7 Bug Fix Released in a New Software Update From Apple

But Apple was fast enough to take care of this problem and has rolled out a new update that takes care of this problem (at least that is what Apple says). The update is just a small security patch and we suggest all iOS 7 consumers to go ahead and get it. By the way, the patch also adds a Greek keyboard option for passcode entry.

So regardless of whether the bug bother you or not, it is better to get the update and be safe. And when you do get the patch, play with the lockscreen a bit and let us know if you find a new way to bypass it (we really hope you do not find one).
