A Latest Flaw in Apple’s iOS 7 device discovered by an iPhone owner Jose Rodriquez, a 36-year-old soldier living in Spain’s Canary Islands.

Jose discovered a Flaw in its old-fashioned passcode lockscreen, he also demonstrated in a video on YouTube—How you can easily unlock an iOS 7 device and access sensitive information stored in photos, Twitter, email and more.

Forbes explored every step but here are points—shortly describing the Flaw:

  • When an iOS 7 device is locked, swipe up on the lock-screen to access control center and tap on the alarm clock.
  • Hold the phone’s power button until the option to power it off with a swipe appears.
  • Click cancel and then double click the home button to access the multitasking screen.
  • From here you can access the camera and stored photos. You can share these photos on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or via email.

The above exploit successfully tested on iPhone5—running iOS 7.

Until Apple patches it,  users can disable control center on the lockscreen by going to Settings > Control Center and turning off “Access on Lock Screen.”
