Bypassing iPhone passcode limit just requires a keyboard

Tim Cook

By "modding" the iOS, you can download applications from third-party websites and stores, customize the interface of the device, etc.

Apple has various security measures, including hardware and software, that ensures hackers are unable to bypass the passcode and gain unauthorized access into a locked iOS device.

Hickey found a way around that.

On newer devices, Apple's Secure Enclave takes things to the next level and helps offer an even greater and more intelligent level of protection on the device.

Taylor Swift surprises fans with Niall Horan duet at Wembley
Taylor Swift left fans pleasantly surprised as she brought out Robbie Williams during her second performance at Wembley Stadium. The "Look What You Made Me Do" singer was joined by Robbie Williams at her concert on Saturday (June 23) at Wembley Stadium.

Hickey's exploit would be another black eye for the iPhone and iPad maker, which has been in a cat and mouse chase with the makers of one recently revealed phone unlocking tool.

Matthew Hickey, co-founder of Hacker House, told ZDNet that the secret to getting around the limit is "Instead of sending passcodes one at a time and waiting, send them all in one go". When an iPhone or iPad is plugged in and keyboard inputs are sent, an interrupt request is triggered which takes priority over everything else.

Apple iOS "Erase data" bypass attack from Hacker Fantastic on Vimeo. That means the iPhone would be too busy to erase the device if the attacker sends it one passcode guess after another.

Companies like Grayshift help police bypass the passcodes on locked iPhones. After an hour had passed since a user had unlocked their phone (via passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID), the iPhone Lightning port used for USB connections would no longer accept data. In order to access that encrypted information, iPhones and iPads require users to enter a four- or six-digit passcode to protect the device that they choose during set-up.

They also said that even when parents and children aren't separated, they're often housed in adjacent cells that keep them apart. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez says she teared up when she heard audio of children crying in detention families.

All said, Apple was right to stand its ground on a bug that turned out to be nothing (for now, as the research goes on), though its attempts at assuaging any lingering concerns its consumers may have could use work.

You only need to look at the fact that multiple law enforcement agencies with cybersecurity divisions have found it almost impossible to break into iPhones without requesting the assistance of Apple or actually having the owner of the device cooperate with investigations.

"I suspect others will find it - or have already found it", he said. You can also send PGP email with the fingerprint: 4D0E 92F2 E36A EC51 DAAE 5D97 CB8C 15FA EB6C EEA5.
