iOS 12: Contacts and photos accessible via fairly complex bypass method

Contacts and photos can be viewed iOS with some effort, even if the iPhone is locked.

This is not necessarily practical for everyday attacks, but it shows that there is always somehow a possibility to bypass possible locks. Currently the problem can be solved easily: Switch off Siri in locked state (Settings > Touch/Face ID).
