    Pretty sure I haven't seen this mentioned yet, but just discovered a huge security flaw on my iPhone 5s.

    I have touch ID enabled for the record.

    If you ask Siri to "Play iTunes Radio" she will start the radio and display "Show Now Playing"

    Touching this will bring you into the music app where you are free to exit to the home screen where you are free to do as you please.

    Nice try though.

    Just did this on my 5s using a finger that isn't registered to unlock my phone. Touching the "Show Now Playing" makes my phone ask for my password to unlock.

    Yup I'm an idiot. Didn't even think about the fact that I started Siri with a registered finger.

    We'll glad to know its wasn't that easy to get into my phone ahah :D
