A couple of worrying security issues popped up last week with iOS 7's launch, both involving the revamped lock screen. Misdoers with physical access to an Apple device running the updated OS were able to access the photo gallery and share images as well as make non-emergency phone calls, even with a passcode in place.
Now Apple has released an update to iOS 7, supposedly closing up both these issues with the ~19MB download. The iOS 7.0.2 update also reintroduces the option of a Greek keyboard for passcode entry and is currently available over-the-air for all supported Apple devices.
It was recently revealed that over 9 million iPhone 5s and 5c handsets had been sold by Apple during the first weekend of availability, shattering any pre-existing records. This latest update should help keep those millions of devices secure and Apple did well in promptly addressing the security concerns.
