    So I've bypassed my lock screen by asking Siri to open notepad. I had to ask about 10 times for it to work. Every time I hold home, say open notepad, she says you must unlock your iPhone first, press lock to turn the screen off, then hold home again and repeat until it works.
    Enjoy :)

    By any chance, when you "hold home", are you using a finger that's been programmed into the TouchID? That seems to be a consistent factor in all of these "security issues".

    Do we really need this every other day?

    Yes, a lot of people don't realize that having Touch ID set up and pressing the home button is actually unlocking their phone. Many of these security issues aren't actually security issues. Those of us who don't have Touch ID set up can't reproduce these issues.
