Here is How to Bypass Passcode Lock Screen on iPhone

Right now this iPhone lockscreen bypass bug was said to occur only on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, due to the reason that these devices feature 3D Touch that is used to bypass the lockscreen and visit iPhone Photos/Contacts.

If you are using iPhone 6s (Plus) with iOS 9.2/9.3/9.3.1, try these steps below to test the iPhone 6s passcode bypass to visit photos/contacts.

Step 1: Lock your iPhone.

Step 2: Invoke Siri and say “Search Twitter”.

Step 3: When Siri asks what to search for, replying: “'at-sign Gmail dot com' or any other popular email domain. This aims to find a tweet containing a valid email address."

Step 4: In the search results, tap on a tweet with a valid email address.

Step 5: 3D Touch that email address to bring up the contextual menu.

Step 6: Tap “Create New Contact”, in the pop-up New Contact interface, click add photo. You may be asked to give Siri access to the Photo Library, confirm it and then you can view all photos in your device. While, when you choose “Add to Existing Contact”, you will be able to access to all Contacts in your iPhone.
