Heard of the $500 device that hacks your iPhone 7? No need to break out in cold sweat, though. If there are problems, there are solutions too. And Apple is best in proving that. Well, it has side-kicked your fear of anonymous intrusion in your iPhone 7. How? It is simple. By committing to the launch of the iOS 11.
A viral YouTube video put up by ‘EverythingApplePro’ describes how passcode cracking of iPhone 7 can be achieved. It might leave you in a fit to acknowledge that the said device can break through three devices at a time. Since iPhone passcodes are minimum 4-digits long, it doesn’t take much of a time to figure it out.
You might be running your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus in iOS 10.3.3 or the beta version of iOS 11. As of late, only this software and hardware combo are said to suffer the setback.
A bug in the iOS 10.3.3 allows for infinite number of passcode guesses. This is quite juxtaposed to the usual recess following multiple incorrect tries. This weak point is exploited in the brute-force password hacking tool.
Although this device might be useful for law-enforcement agencies. Yet, it won’t brighten up your day if somebody attempts to sieve through your iPhone 7.
Keeping your safety in mind, Apple has come up with a neat reply to this possible threat. With the roll-out of iOS 11 round the corner, you can be assured of more secure features.
Furthermore, the snag has already been patched up in the beta 4 version of iOS 11. Whereas, instant upgradation to iOS 11 would also steer you to safe waters.
Even before the latest Apple OS steps out, you might be on tenterhooks vis-à-vis your iPhone 7 security. Here also, you have a back-up for the trouble. You can change your passcode to a higher value, then keeping it short at four digits. You can still upgrade your device to iOS 11 beta 4 for enhanced protection.
Nevertheless, you can still hang on until the iOS 11 takes the ground. It would supposedly feature an element whereby you can reset a password on continuous five taps of the home button. This would halt the hacking process to go any further.
