#776 Apple has fixed a bug that let hackers bypass iPhone lock screen
Apple has fixed a security flaw that could let a hacker access personal data on a user's iPhone.

The company fixed the flaw in a software update, iOS 9.3.2, which is rolling out to iPhone and iPad users across the globe.

Anyone with physical access to an affected phone would've been able to access the user's contacts, photos, text and picture messages, emails, and phone settings by exploiting how Siri processes data.
