FRUIT THEMED GADGET SELLER Apple's Ipad 2 has a security flaw that allows would-be snoopers to unlock the tablet without a password.

Anyone with a Smart Cover can break into a "password-protected" Ipad 2, as we show in our video. The person who unlocks the device has access to anything that was on the screen before it was locked, including email, messages, and settings.

To recreate the problem, we locked the password protected device, held down the power button until it reached the turn off slider, closed Smart Cover, opened Smart Cover and clicked cancel on the bottom of the screen.

However we found that the problem was inconsistent, and did not crop up every single time we tried to recreate it.

This issue is not just confined to IOS 5, since IOS 4.3 also exhibits the vulnerability. µ
