London: Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a charger, which is capable of hacking any iOS when plugged in.

The group constructed the device by examining Apple`s existing security before realizing how the USB capabilities can be leveraged to bypass these defence mechanisms, the independent reported.

Once the charger called `Mactans,` gets plugged in, it is able to install hidden malware onto iPhones and iPads, allowing for any number of exploits of users` hardware and their data.
The researchers said that the device was built in limited amount of time and a small budget.
