A hacker bypasses iPhone passcodes on iOS 11 or later

According to ZDNet Matthew Hickey, a security specialist, and a hacker has discovered a method to brute force the iPhone or iPad passcode running iOS 11 or later.

In the earlier iOS version, all iOS devices have a encryption and have a functionality of four or six-digit passcode protection which was impossible to break or unlock iPhone or iPad without a passcode.

And if the wrong passcode is entered too many times, the device gets a locked out and have to wait until the time frame which then needs to restore it to the factory setting.

Now security researcher and co-founder of cybersecurity firm Hacker House have found a way to bypass wrong passcode limit on iOS 11 or later and has posted on Vimeo.

Hickey found a way around that. He explained that when an iPhone or iPad is plugged in and a would-be-hacker sends keyboard inputs, it triggers an interrupt request, which takes priority over anything else on the device.
