There are numerous methods on how to bypass iPhone passcode for your lock screen. We mentioned a lot of them, including the cool DNS iCloud bypass for iPhone and iPad that gives users a lot of functions with the screen still being locked. But since this DNS bypass works only on Windows computers, you might want to look at other tools.
One iPhone passcode hack we’ve heard recently about is the small box capable of brute forcing to get past the locked iDevice. This is the most recent iPhone passcode bypass 2015 tool that is not free. It is pretty expensive costing up to $300.
Apple doesn’t make passcode lock bypass simple for its customers. If you forgot the password and the company can’t help you with getting access to your iPhone back you might wanna spend $300 and unlock your smartphone instead of purchasing the brand new model, especially if you were already SIM free on the one that is locked.
The IP Box, as its creators say, is a small box [even a tiny one] that keeps the iPhone’s data intact while bypassing your lock screen. This tool has been reportedly used by device repairers who are helping users who don’t remember their passcodes for iOS 7 or iOS 8 smartphones.
If you try to remember your passcode without having to use iPhone passcode hack you only have 10 attempts. If you fail 10 times all your data will be automatically wiped. The IP Box, as its dev [MDSec] says, can bypass this Apple’s security measure meaning all your information and data will be safe.
Since the box accesses your iPhone by finding the right PIN combination, the procedure of such unlock can take about 111 hours. It cuts off your iPhone power before it records the failed attempt to bypass the iOS 8, 8.1 lock screen. The iOS 8.2 lockscreen unlock has yet to be tested by the box creators.
Can you imagine that hack iPhone calls will help users to answer incoming calls from this Apple smartphone with Android Wear device.
Mohammad Abu-Garbeyyeh, the Cydia developer created jailbreak tweaks such as SpotlightSiri and DoubleTapToSleep. Back in February he showed off proof-of-concept which allows the stock iOS Messages app notification to be sent directly to a flagship Android Wear device, Motorola’s Moto 360.
Since that time he has been working to find various ways to add more functionality to the app and this morning posted a new great video shows how an Android Wear watch can accept an incoming call from an iPhone.
This Moto hack solution gains a little bit of software magic. As shown in the video below, the developer had to simulate the gesture to answer the incoming iPhone call on Android Watch, no jailbreak required herein.
To make answering iPhone calls with Android Wear possible requires ANCS usage. However an Apple’s smartphone featured in the video is jailbroken, jailbreak is not needed for the iPhone calling functionality on Android Wear.
And according to the nature of the API used, this also means that iOS 8’s Actionable Notifications are supported as well.
It’s important to remember that this is an unofficial hack iPhone calls solution so Apple company may choose to obviate Mohammad’s app at any time. And I am sure it will do it very soon.
Google in its the turn claimed that they plan to work on an iPhone app that will gain full Android Wear compatibility to iOS.
CIA hack Apple devices spread all over news and shocked all users. Newly leaked documents reveal that the Central Intelligence Agency has been providing many-year effort to hack the Apple iPhones and iPads security.
They targeted the essential security keys that were used to encrypt data stored on Apple’s devices. The researchers have searched ways to prevent the company’s attempts to ensure iOS security to hundreds of millions of Apple customers around the world.
U.S. government-sponsored research was developed to study “physical” and “non-invasive” techniques to discover ways to decrypt and sink into Apple’s encrypted iOS firmware.
CIA security researchers introduced all their tactics and achievements at a secret annual meeting that is called the ‘Jamboree’. Strategies for exploiting security flaws in household and commercial electronics were discussed. The first secret meeting took place a year before the original iPhone was launched.
The agency has developed a modified version of Xcode. It is used almost by every developer that submit applications to the Apple App Store. Researchers states that this modified Xcode could force all iOS applications to send embedded data to a listening post. CIA researchers also modified the OS X updater program used to deliver software updates.
It was also rumors that companies give the government access to data on devices through a “back door” due to the CIA hack Apple devices fact. Apple CEO Tim Cook recently spoke at a White House Summit on Cybersecurity and Consumer Protection protecting the company’s encryption usage. Cook has said that the threat of terrorism should not terrify citizens into giving up their privacy.
Can you imagine that NSA hacked iPhone SIM cards. Last week it was reported about the newest leak from Edward Snowden. He stated that the NSA had hacked the SIM cards of multiple smartphones on Earth, including iPhones.
It is really sad news, as this hack allowed the NSA to get into your phone without a court order. But today, Gemalto the Dutch company responsible for 2 billion SIM cards introduced a statement, in which it they persuade that all this fears of a massive NSA invasion are much overblown.
However Gemalto, the suffered from hack company, tells it is still investigating the matter, they’re now saying that at first glance, the supposed hack is a non-issue.
Gemalto is the world leader in digital security and in its statement persuades all community that they devoted the necessary resources to examine and understand the boundaries of such sophisticated techniques. They also added that initial conclusions already shows that Gemalto SIM units including banking cards, passports and other products and platforms are secure and the Company doesn’t expect to suffer from a significant financial prejudice.
Gemalto claims that they will launch their full findings and conclusions on Wednesday. To prove its beliefs they also invite security experts to look them over, to make sure they haven’t missed anything.
Can you realize the seriousness of this situation. Gemalto doesn’t deny that NSA hacked iPhone and others smartphone SIM cards. So there are another interesting questions was Snowden’s information much overblown or is there some other hidden information we’re not aware of yet? Maybe we will get all the answers on Wednesday.

At present time there is a real need to protect iCloud password from different hacking tools like iDict. This tool use brute-force techniques in order to success the iCloud account. The users with weak password become first to be hacked. Although, according to latest reports, the exploits were patched by Apple within a few days.
The developer launched the code and did not provide details in advance to Apple, which is unusual. The standard practice says that in order to give a company time to patch the vulnerability, you need to disclose this information privately.
iDict counted on exactly what the creator stated was obviously a “painfully obvious” problem with exactly how Apple managed repeated password failures through a particular URL. This type of problem is the same as reports that turned out after last summer’s iCloud hack, which involved a variety of unthrottled password efforts towards iCloud and attempts to response security questions determined by celebrities’ biographies and other options. It was not also a secondary authentication bypass. It was a way for hacker to avoid answering security questions. As for now the iDict developer page is closed, and the tool is patched by Apple.
Let’s learn the anatomy of an hack tool attack and how protect iCloud account.
iDict and similar remote brute-force attacks rely on three elements: a way to perform excessive tests of passwords for an individual account; a way to bypass an account protection and a weak password.
The users with the strong password that are used only to current account should not worry about brute force attacks. If you pick a weak password, brute force method allow attacker to capture, encrypt passwords and test it with home-computer equipment against billions of passwords only per second. In this case, finding one password match helps the attacker to find all accounts that use the same password. So in order to protect personal iCloud documents you need to create strong password with 15 to 20 characters or mix of letters, numbers, and punctuation.
iDict came with a list of a few hundred default passwords that meet Apple’s minimum requirements for an Apple ID. These could be added to any person that use the code. Making these short lists even more dangerous, it’s possible for hackers to chain attacks.
Two-step verification is real way to protect iCloud password against attacks. If you’re using any password on about list, or anything similar, you need to change it immediately. Or better please enable two-step verification. The other two elements required for an iDict attack to work. Although this process again is under the control of Apple. The company should pay a real attention on its problem.
Is iDict not working? Yes. Just a few days ago on GitHub handle Prox13 had released iDict hacking tool. It helped any person using brute force hack iCloud account.
The hacker stated on the tool’s GitHub page that it was 100% working using dictionary to hack iCloud account and bypassed secondary authentication on any user account.
This hacking tool was developed in the way that it used brute force method to repeatedly match the password using words from the dictionary. In cases where the victim has used a weak password the brute force method are usually 100 % successful.
With the aim to prevent the tool from repeatedly guessing the account, Apple company, by temporarily locking the account, should have ideally blocked the brute force attack.
Although Prox13 stated that his tool bypassed all Apple protection methods. Some of Reddit and Twitter users have tested the iDict tool and confirmed that it worked.
After that here are good news, Apple seems to have finally patched the flaw. The hacker has confirmed that Apple company has fixed the exploit, and is locking the account for security reasons to prevent such brute force attacks.
The users with strong password shouldn’t be worried about such attacks. But there were situations that some persons were able to bypass the security measures. It was when the massive nude celebrity photo leak sourced from hacked iCloud accounts.
Apple encourages all its consumers to use strong password for online accounts and enable two-step authentication for services like iCloud to avoid such incidents. The iDict is not working now, but it is not known when the other hacker will develop another tool to hack iCloud accounts.
