While iOS 12 is perhaps the best mobile operating system that Apple has launched so far, it has its drawbacks, one of which is security. Video debarraquito found a password bypass on September 26th, which provided access to the iPhone photos and contacts through the lock screen. While this vulnerability has been patched already, Videodebarraquito has detected a new one that affects iPhones on iOS 12.1.1 beta and iOS 12.1.
On 30th th October, The Popular Video Debarraquito Channel on YouTube by Jose Rodriguez showed a bypass vulnerability that works in iOS 1
The video shows that only a couple of default entries allow users to access the locked handset contacts if iPhone has a call enabled – the entire FaceTime Group chat. But unlike an earlier bypass, it does not allow access to the pictures.

Everyone can use the bypass itself to view someone's phone numbers, contacts, and emails. All you need is a phone number on a device running iOS 12.1.1 or iOS 12.1 – after that, just follow these steps to access the entire list of contacts.
- Call the locked device. The instructions remaining must be performed on the locked device.
- Make the call
- From the Call menu screen, select FaceTime.
- Touch the 3 points (…) at the bottom right of IOS 12.1 or swipe up at the bottom (on the panel) if using iOS 12.1.1.
- Select "Add Person," then click "+" in the upper right.
- You will now be able to view all contacts on iDevice, including addresses, email addresses, and contact data that can be saved.
To test the bypass, you better improve Do it quickly as it does not last long. And although it may look like something that was intentionally put into iOS 12.1 or iOS 12.1.1, it probably meant to be closed behind password security, Touch ID or Face ID.
