News on the bug fixes
Ars Technica reports:
The release notes only mention the Exchange issues, but we wanted to check to see if the passcode unlock bug from iOS 6.1 had also been fixed. We tried the convoluted unlock exploit on our own iPhone and were able to unlock the screen successfully under iOS 6.1.1, and the same process once again unlocked the phone in iOS 6.1.2. Put simply: it doesn’t look like this update fixes the passcode unlock bug, according to our testing.
We’re assuming that since Apple had acknowledged the issue, they would have mentioned it in the release notes if it was fixed.
If you’re worried about it, then you should set up disable “Simple Passcode” feature (Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock) on your iPhone and setup an alphanumeric passcode.
If you’ve upgraded to iOS 6.1.2, let us know if you have been able to replicate the bug.
