Summary

Apple released iOS 15 on Monday and there’s already a vulnerability making the rounds.

Security researcher Jose Rodriguez published a video Monday detailing how he was able to bypass the lock screen on an iPhone with iOS 15 (and iOS 14.8) in order to access the Notes app.

The vulnerability requires an attacker to have physical access to the targeted device.

In the video, with his iPhone locked, Rodriguez asks Siri to activate VoiceOver, a feature that audibly describes what’s on the screen. He then pulls down the Control Center and taps Instant Notes, which allows users to quickly jot down a note without unlocking the iPhone. Rodriguez then accesses the Control Center again, this time opening the stop watch app.
