iOS users can breathe easy: You won’t have to worry about someone bypassing your lock screen. Per 9to5Mac, Apple on Thursday released iOS 7.0.2, the latest update to its mobile platform that fixes a security hole that could let unauthorized users access the device by bypassing the passcode. 9to5Mac notes that users will need a Wi-Fi connection to install the update and that its file size is between 17MB and 20MB. iOS 7 has had lock screen security issues ever since the first beta of the operating system was released this past summer so here’s hoping the new update fixes the lock screen issues once and for all.
