    Pretty sure Apple's engineers thought of it.

    Would you not have thought of it unless there was a blog post suggesting it can be done?

    If someone is that untrusting of their family ( who can also take the car keys ) then reboot the phone before sleeping. Then it requires a traditional unlock in the morning. Same if you get pinched. They can compel you to touch your finger but not to enter your passcode.

    Someone was fishing with this story. A thief or cop could force you to type in your passcode as well.

    Recently (at least in one state) the passcode was protected by 5th amendment as it's something you know. http://m.imore.com/court-rules-cops-...-unlock-iphone

    A thug with a gun to your head sure can.

    Actually it is worth noting that the kid is tech savvy.

    BGR does tend to write articles about non news.

    BGR, over exaggerates with everything; not surprising.

    Can't believe this is actually a story. I mean seriously, isn't this obvious? This is like opening up a local news paper and reading how the keys to my car has a security flaw because anyone can take it from me. Obviously whoever wrote that had an agenda.
