Mac fan site 9to5Mac has demonstrated that hackers can gain access to any iPad by manipulating the Smart Cover of the tablet device.
Apple’s iPads have a four-digit password code that is required to unlock the device. However, there is a glitch in the password lock that makes it vulnerable to hackers, said 9to5Mac in a blog.
9to5Mac worte on the blog that it is easy to trick iPad into opening up without requiring a password, reported the Daily Mail.
A magnetic Smart Cover is the only thing required to crack the iPad password lock. The hacker can then maniplate the magnetic sensors on the screen to gain access to locked iPad 2s without knowing the password.
