    This only works because the man in the video unlocked his iPhone with the finger he has registered with Touch ID. If you try this with any other finger then it prompts you the passcode.

    This one is actually real. I haven't tested it with 9.0.1 yet though. Turn off Siri on lock screen for now to prevent this.

    Like I said, try it without using the finger you use for Touch ID and I guarantee it won't work.

    Funny, considering I've tested it multiple times on my own devices.

    Plus this. Turn off Siri on the lock screen.

    I can't get it to work. I have a complex password and Siri turned off.

    You can also prevent it by using a password instead of a numeric passcode.

    I too tested it and it worked. And I used my knuckle to activate Siri.

    If you turn Siri on and press down on the home button to activate Siri with a finger that you DO NOT use for Touch ID and it won't bypass the lock screen

    Just tried it again and it didn't work. Weird.

    You have to get the timing just right when entering the last digit at the end. Here's another video showing the steps:

    It works with 6 digit passcodes (that's what I tried it with). Either use a non-numeric password, or disable Siri in the lockscreen until it's fixed.

    And because YOU can't get it to work it isn't possible. Everyone - Alonso Quijano has the final say! If it doesn't work for him it can't for true.

    Seems like an easy fix is too turn off Siri on the home page along with a long password. Both of which I had in iOS 8.

    Anyone verify if this is still there in 9.0.1?

    Or just not give a crap about it because no one else will ever handle my phone anyway.

    Not mine.

    Over the years I have developed a set of cardinal rules regarding iPhones. They can be applied to any smartphone... but since myself and a lot of my friends are Apple fans... I call them my iPhone Cardinal Rules. It is very simple. Following them has caused me to never lose or misplace an iPhone.

    Cardinal Rule #1.

    If your iPhone isn't in your hand, it's in your pocket.

    Cardinal Rule #2.

    If your iPhone isn't in your pocket it's in your hand.

    There are only 2 exceptions to Cardinal Rule #2.

    #1 Exception:
    If you are home, your iPhone can be left at your charge/sync area to charge or sync if that is consistently the same place you charge/sync. Don't constantly move your charger around your house.

    #2 Exception:
    If you have a docking station for your iPhone in your vehicle, you may dock it there while driving, but under no circumstances are you to leave your vehicle unless you execute Cardinal Rule #1 or #2.

    I recite these rules to friends who leave their phones on the table while enjoying a meal at the restaurant. By doing this, you are just asking for a drink to spill on your phone or to just forget it when you pay your bill and leave.

    Another one for guys is leaving it on the top of a urinal toilet while going to the bathroom. Why not just stick it in your pocket while you take a pee?

    I get to the step where I tap the Messages icon and then I'm reprompted for my passcode. I cannot get past that. 9.0.1 on 6s Plus. Puzzling.
