A few days after the release of iOS 13 , set by Apple for next week, a user has identified the existence of a bug that allows to have access to the phone book also without releasing it.
The first to report this issue was Jose Rodriguez, who had already informed the Cupertino house last July. However, the problem still seems to persist in the Gold Master version of iOS 13, which will be released Thursday 19 September .
The Verge reports that this inconvenience allows you to access your iPhone's contacts – including names, phone numbers, emails and other details – without the need to unlock them.
As you can see in the demo movie shared by the user who detected the bug, all you have to do is receive a call on FaceTime to activate the VoiceOver , and then use Siri to access the contacts.
It has been confirmed that the exploit works with the iOS version 13. 0 GM, but Apple seems to have already solved the problem in the iOS beta versions 13. 1, which should be made available to the public starting from 30 September.
