But while following the hack "how to" I couldn't help thinking "how in the world did someone figure this out?"




Same way they used to find Easter eggs? Too much time... Btw, that "fix" assumes (in iOS 8.3 anyway) that Siri is already on. It was the first thing I turned off, so when it's off that lock option isn't available. Speaking of which, there's the simple (short numeric) passcode and the real deal. Don't get using the simple option <shrug>

If you want to consider a very doable OS X exploit, this guy found an interesting one. Very long and detailed article, may be of interest. I downloaded the app he wrote, which has amusing initials (which I'm guessing were intentional), that's available here.
