After a series of security issues, it appears that Apple still has not been able to resolve all the issue in iOS that powers the iPhone, iPad and the iPod touch. A YouTube video has surfaced, which shows that iOS 6.1.2 has a major security flaw that allows unauthorized bypassing of the lock-code and allows access to contacts and other features of the device.

Apple had recently upgraded the software to iOS 6.1.2 in order to fix bugs that caused the bugs and security issues; however, even the new version has failed to resolve the problem and is creating similar issues.

Apple has been facing a lot of trouble with security flaws found in iOS 6 and despite working on it. Even after making several upgrades to the OS it has not been able to provide an effective solution for the security of content and the bugs found in the software. It had earlier tried to fill the loopholes however to date, all efforts have gone in vain and the problem still remains.

Apple has officially recognized the problem and has confirmed to the AllThingsD that it is working on a future update to resolve it.
