A few days before, Apple launched its most awaited and much talked about operating system - iOS 7 along with the release of iPhone 5s and 5c. However, this operating system came with few bugs bringing some serious security issues for the users. Among them, trespassing lock screen and accessing some personal data was deadly.

When the glitch was surfaced by a 36 year-old soldier Jose Rodriguez living in Spain’s Canary Island, Apple soon caught on and promised a fix, which has arrived now.
