An easy way to hack an iPhone using a phone number
Turkish cybersecurity expert Melih Sevim discovered a vulnerability that could potentially allow anyone to access data from an iPhone.
Apple is linking the phone number, which is specified in the Apple ID, with the owner's iCloud account. After conducting his own research, Sevim noticed that any user registered in iCloud can indicate someone else's phone number in the information and in this way receive part of the data associated with this number in the system.
