Apple Releases iOS 7.0.2 To Fix Lock Screen Glitch

The bug fix for all iDevices patches a vulnerability that could let people bypass the lock screen passcode.

Apple has pushed out a fix for the passcode unlock bug in iOS 7, which made it possible to bypass the lock screen passcode via a complicated series of screen taps and button presses. Unlike iOS 7.0.1 (for the iPhone 5S and 5C only), version 7.0.2 is available for download and as an over-the-air update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

In addition to fixing the passcode bug, the latest update also returns to duty a Greek keyboard for passcodes, which had apparently gone AWOL.

9to5Mac reports that Apple may also be testing iOS 7.1, presumably in advance of a rumored Apple event next month focused around the Mac Pro and still-as-yet-unannounced new iPad line.
