iPhone Lockscreen Can Be Bypassed in iOS 6.1 in 3 Seconds

iPhone users look out for a security update from Apple. The latest iOS version (6.1) has a bit of a security hack that can allow someone to get onto your locked phone in a couple of seconds.

You are able to bypass the lockscreen by making and immediately canceling an emergency call, then holding the power button twice. I tried this on an iPhone 5 earlier running 6.1 and it was able to bypass lock code.

Check out the video below that exposed this:
