Apple recently released iOS 6.1.3 which included a fix for the passcode bypass bug that would allow an unauthorized person to access the Phone app on a locked iPhone. One day after the update, however, Matthew Panzarino of The Next Web is reporting that a new bypass bug has been discovered, this time by videosdebarraquito.
Well known Jailbreak expert Chronic, of Chronic Dev Team, discovered a couple of hidden menu pages have been found in the latest beta of iOS 5, confirming that Apple is heavily involved in bringing system wide voice integration to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Voice recognition was widely rumored to be coming in iOS 5 however there was little mention of it at the recent WWDC keynote. We did see it briefly mentioned on one of the slides but that was all.
TechCrunch has been told that Apple will be integrating system-wide voice control technology into iOS 5 derived from their purchase of Siri last year. Apple is reportedly putting the finishing touches on the feature which will be demoed at WWDC in June.
A year ago, Apple bought Siri, a virtual personal assistant startup that had released a very cool iPhone app. The Siri team and technology are now said to be a big part of iOS 5.
