A new vulnerability has been found on iOS 11 and it appears to affect all iDevices running the latest version of the software.
Using a few easy steps anyone can access the photos on a device running the public iOS 11.0.3 or the beta iOS 11.1. The flaw was seemingly discovered by the YouTube channel iDeviceHelp.
You need to know the phone number inside of the iPhone (which can be easily found through Siri), call it and then repeat a few steps from the lock screen.
Apple will likely release an update shortly to patch this up and while the bug isn’t likely to be discovered by someone by accident, it’s still discomforting to know that someone could access your private photos.
