Not so good news for iOS 6 users who are concerned about privacy. As spotted by Gizmodo UK, YouTube user videosdebarraquito posted up a video that shows how a person can bypass a lockscreen passcode in just a few steps. The procedure requires you to hold the power button while you place and then disconnect an emergency call. This multi-step process opens the iOS Phone app which is a launching point for contacts, FaceTime, photos and more. You can check out the hack in the video below and then watch The Verge replicate it on their own iPhone.
