Apple fixes Siri bug which let anyone access photos and contacts on a locked iPhone

Well, that was fast. Less than 24 hours after it was picked up by the media, the iOS security flaw which let anyone access a locked iPhone 6S/6S Plus contacts and photos without a password was fixed — and it didn’t even require a software download.
Apple confirmed in a statement to the Washington Post that the bug was fixed Tuesday morning. The fix seems to consist in Siri not being allowed to search Twitter on a locked phone under any circumstances. I’ve tested this and, unlike yesterday, I was unable to perform any kind of Twitter search through Siri unless I unlocked the device first.
