Apple iphone securityApple has some nasty bugs in its iPhone operating systems (iOS 7.1, iOS 7.1.1 and iOS 7.0.4.).

Did you know?

A thief can unlock your iPhone’s contact list and make calls to any of the numbers listed. However, to do this, the thief needs physical access to your phone.

What to do? 

  • Deactivate Siri from the lock screen of your iPhone using the Passcode options in Settings.
