Fix vow over iPhone security glitch
Hackers say they have been able to access people's personal data on iPhones due to a security glitch in Apple's new iOS 7 software.
The flaw means that the phone's lockscreen can be bypassed, meaning that texts, emails and photos can be accessed along with users' Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The problem was discovered soon after iOS 7 became publicly available on Wednesday, but appears to only be an issue with the iPhone 4S and 5 handsets
A spokesman for Apple told the Guardian: "Apple takes user security very seriously. We are aware of this issue, and will deliver a fix in a future software update."
The new look operating system had already got off to a rocky start as users complained about difficulties downloading it.
Hailed as a new beginning for the technology giant, the iOS 7 was eagerly anticipated but tech fans complained of messages telling them: ''An error occurred whilst downloading iOS 7.0''.
Users took to social media such as Twitter to express their frustration at the setback as ''iOS 7.0'' became a trending topic.
The operating system was unveiled just months after Apple posted its first profit slide in a decade and drew accusations that it has failed to innovate.
British design chief Sir Jonathan Ive introduced iOS 7 as an ''important new direction'' when he showcased the software at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco earlier this year.
The American company's chief executive Tim Cook described it as ''the biggest change to iOS since the introduction of the iPhone''.
