Thought your iPad was protected? It has been discovered that someone can easily unlock your iPad 2, even if it is password protected. All you need is a iPad Smart Cover (?!).



Try it yourself:

  • Lock a passcode enabled iPad 2
  • Hold down power button until it reaches the shutoff slider screen
  • Close Smart Cover
  • Open Smart Cover
  • Click cancel

You can now use whatever is open on the screen and delete applications.

The workaround?

Until an update arrives from Apple, the only way around this is to disable Smart Cover unlocking in the General settings menu.
