Apple has been rocked by accusations that it failed to stamp out a privacy-compromising flaw in the brand-new iPhone update despite being alerted to it months ago.
The iOS 13 software which was rolled out yesterday reportedly allows hackers to raid a customer’s contacts list.
It comes as the new iPhone 11 goes on sale in the UK today after being launched at an event in California last week, with prices starting at £529.
The bug was revealed by private cybersecurity expert Jose Rodriguez who alerted the technology giant that he had found a ‘password bypass’ in July.
In a YouTube video he shows how when someone is receiving an incoming call it’s possible to navigate through the messaging system to coax the phone into automatically suggesting contacts from inside the phone.
