    Apple fixes iOS security flaw

    APPLE has rolled out iOS7.0.2, an updated version of its latest operating system, which will stop people from bypassing a handset's lock screen.

    The tech giant discovered the security flaw within hours of the iOS7 launch on Sept 18.

    The flaw allows anyone to open an iPhone's control-centre panel and gain access to text messages, e-mail, photo albums and Facebook, Twitter and Flickr accounts, even when the device is locked and the passcode activated, AFP Relaxnews reported.

    According to the latest reports, 60 per cent of Apple device owners have already upgraded to the new version of the operating system.
