Apple iOS 9.3.1 faces a Challenge as Bug discovered that gives Access to Contacts and Photos

Apple iPhone 6 and 6 plus are facing a major problem now-a-days as the new update iOS 9.3.1 is giving access to the hackers to access user’s contacts and photos. The company Apple has always been strongly working on the security measures to keep its operating system safe, but this time, hackers have been successful in exploiting the data of users. This bug is working on Apple’s 3D touch functioned screens, which is presently coming in Apple iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.You can get more iPhone Accessories here.

However, this bug can be fixed by the users before company introduces a permanent fix. The bug acts on Siri on the locked screen. If one asks for assistance on Siri for twitter and also request to open a Gmail or Yahoo account, then it will show all 3D touch email addresses on the popped up menu and thus the advantage can be taken to access the contacts and photos stored on the phone without opening the screen with password or code.

It is rather quite easy to fix the bug problem. The user has to simply go to the settings and go to Touch ID & passcode option, there, one has to disable Siri on Lock Screen. Another way to fix the bug is to just disable Photo access from Siri, this will prevent Siri from accessing Photos on locked screen.
