Apple promises fix for iOS 6 passcode bypass bug

Apple has release a statement concerning the iOS 6.1 bug that, through a complex series of button pushes and taps, will allow someone with physical access to an iPhone to bypass the passcode lock and get at the private content inside.

An Apple spokesperson told Jim Dalrymple of The Loop that it's known and being worked on. No date was given for the next release, of course, though given the nature of the bug, as well as other issues like the Microsoft Exchange bug, it'll hopefully be soon.
