Apple released iOS 12 couple weeks ago, though it promised to focus on software quality and privacy issues, however, a bug in the iOS 12 allows anyone to passcode bypass then accesses contacts and photos that works even on iPhone XS, according to a YouTube video posted by EverythingApplePro Channel.


Bypass and access contacts is not simple anymore, as the YouTuber says you will need to invoke Siri, ask it to enable VoiceOver, call the phone number, when the 'slide to answer' interface shown up, click on the message icon twice, then tap on Contact twice, press on the '+' button, then send a message from other device to this device, the display all the sudden change into white screen, tap on and swipe the display many times, enter numbers, tap on a contact, then click on the "i" icon, and you can see the contact info.

Unlike most iPhone passcode bypasses, the process is far complicated, but appears to work, provided the attacker has physical access to a device that has Siri enabled. It works on every iOS 12 devices such as iPhone 5S all the way to iPhone XS, however, it's unclear if it works for non-iOS 12 devices.

Currently, it's likely Apple will fix the bug rather sooner than later, in a form of iOS 12.0.1 or other. Well, it does look like Apple still needs some work on iOS 12, although this seems pretty tricky to do it. We will update if Apple responds the matter.
