Apple has shown an open pair of ears and a lively pair of heels in dealing with two lockscreen bugs that it introduced with iOS 7.

Well done, Cupertino!

(To all hardcore Apple fans reading this: that’s not irony. I really mean it.)

The fruity company has just released iOS 7.0.2, fixing the following:

– The flaw found by videodebarraquito that allowed your photos to be shared online from the lockscreen.
– The flaw found by Karam Daoud that meant you could use the emergency call feature to call anyone you liked while the phone was locked.

Apple isn’t saying too much about the first hole, letting on neither how it came about nor what needed fixing.
