Two significant bugs have turned up in iOS 6.1, and Apple is reportedly rushing out an update to fix them.

iOS UnlockLast week, Apple revealed that there’s a problem in the latest version of the iOS — released in late January — that can affect those who use Microsoft Exchange, causing battery drain on the iPhone and getting the user locked out of their Exchange account.

Even more serious, a bug in iOS 6.1 makes it possible for someone to bypass the security lock on an iDevice. Doing so just requires making and canceling an emergency call from the lockscreen and pressing the power and home buttons in the right sequence.

The new version, iOS 6.1.2, is reportedly going to be out on or before Wednesday, Feb. 20.
