Look out! iPhone passwords can be hacked

Apple may employ 1000s of the best computer whizz kids in the world, but sometimes even the simplest of errors can pass them by. According to a tweet from Ryan Petrich, the iPhone has one major security flaw - password’s on the iPhone can be easily hacked.

“If a password is inputted in a field, shake to undo, and you will be able to see the character you are deleting. Simply repeat this for every character, and you have the password” ta-dah!

Of course, if you’re a criminal this is only helpful if you’re next to someone with an iPhone as they type in their password. Nevertheless it's a serious security flaw which Apple will no doubt address with their next firmware update. Follow Ryan Petrich on Twitter to hear more Apple mistakes.
