He goes ahead to show how simple it is get by and by identifiable data about the gadget’s proprietor just by asking Siri “Who am I?” Then, outfitted with that data, he continues to break into (as far as anyone knows) bolted zones of the iPhone by basically making a call with FaceTime.
As should be obvious in the video, iDeviceHelp could get to touchy data like contacts just by having Siri empower the VoiceOver availability setting amid a FaceTime call. He expresses that once he’s gotten to that point, he could burrow further to discover considerably more individual data, for example, the majority of the photographs on the iPhone—and that is with the iPhone being referred to running the most recent form of iOS 10.2. Here are the full strides to reproduce this:
- Ask Siri “Who am I?” on the target iPhone.

- On the target iPhone, tap on “Message” on the call screen, then “Custom.”
- Ask Siri to “Turn on VoiceOver,” then exit Siri.
- Double-tap on the contact bar where “To: person” is, then immediately tap on the keyboard. This may take a few tries.
- When the Camera, Digital Touch, and iMessage apps icons appear, ask Siri to “Turn off VoiceOver.”
- Exit Siri, then type a letter on the keyboard to find contacts that begin with that letter.
- Look for a contact with an info icon, then tap on the “i.”
- You’re now in that contact’s info.
- Hit “Create New Contact.”

- Finally, select “Choose Photo,” and you’ll have access to the entire iPhone’s photos, even though the iPhone is still locked.
