It might not also survive the USB Restricted mode that Apple is introducing with iOS 12 which will essentially only allow an iOS device to be charged if it remains locked for more than an hour. An Apple spokesperson said, The recent report about a passcode bypass on iPhone was in error, and a result of incorrect testing. Also, after ten incorrect attempts to enter the correct passcode, the iPhone gets wiped and the information inside the device is lost forever. This is a problem faced by law enforcement agencies when they encounter iPhones in the cases they're working on - as well as people trying to hack into phones for nefarious purposes - so it's little wonder that hackers are constantly trying to find a way to earn unlimited guesses at passcodes.

"I went back to double check all code and testing", said Hickey in a subsequent message on Sunday. He has since retracted this claim after Apple stepped in to "correct" him. While hackers have tried and continue to brute force their way into a locked iPhone or iPad, Apple has managed to thwart such attempts using dedicated security chip called Secure enclave on its devices and other software enhancements. By "modding" the iOS, you can download applications from third-party websites and stores, customize the interface of the device, etc.

For those unfamiliar with hacking terms, brute force attacks are basically as its name implies, an attack that focuses purely on "force" where in hopes that the system will eventually give way after numerous hacking attempts.

"But Durmaz is fully behind the complaints", Sjostrand said via a statement. There were a lot of feelings in the heat of the moment".

However, Hickey found that, if an iPhone or iPad was plugged in, any keyboard input would trigger a unsafe and disabling interrupt request. When an iPhone is plugged in, keyboard input has precedence over the phone's passcode limit feature. The attack only works after the device is booted up because there are more routines running. This new bug forced Apple to rethink on calling the finding an "error".

"Instead of sending passcodes one at a time and waiting, send them all in one go", he said. For years, Apple's iOS recommended that users employ six-digit security codes, which would take weeks to hack via Hickey's method.
