Steps to bypass the Authentication

Step1 : Dial the Targeted Phone number.

Step2: In the targeted phone click message icon and choose to send an custom message in responding to the call.

Step3: Siri need to be activated by long-press the home button, and tell the phone through siri “Turn On VoiceOver” . VoiceOver is a gesture-based screen reader that lets you enjoy using iPhone even if you don’t see the screen.

Step4: Return to the message screen and double-click on the bar where the contact info is displayed, and immediately click on the on-screen keyboard. This may take multiple attempts to get the timing right, but you will know you’ve succeeded when you see the “Photo” icon and other options slide in from the side above the keyboard.

Step5: So now we can ask Siri to disable “Turn On VoiceOver” , now come back to message and simply type first letter of the caller ID in top bar, then tap Φ icon which help us to add/edit contacts.

Step6: Now can select photo to set for contact “yes now you are victim gallery you can see all photos”, but still the phone is locked.

Step7: Also you can select any contact and you can see all the information’s like a boss.
