iOS 7.0.2 Update

Apple rolled out a new update for iOS, the second update for users who updated to iOS 7 on last Wednesday, September 18, 2013.

iOS 7.0.2 update was designed to address a flaw that would allow for someone to bypass the iPhone's lock screen without a passcode.

I was able to successfully use this exploit. The procedure required that you make an emergency call but dial any non-emergency number and click "Send" over and over again. It took a few seconds but the phone froze and rebooted. When it returned from the reboot, my iPhone was calling the non-emergency number and successfully went through (I called a number that was close by and it did receive my iPhone's call). Once that was done, I was able to get into my iPhone without any sort of passcode.

iOS 7.0.2 promises to fix this issue as well as reintroduce a Greek keyboard option for passcode entry.
