If you look at the video, the iOS vulnerability can be seen as part of running accessibility features on the device. He used the iPhone VoiceOver feature and the Siri assistant to access the Photo Library, open photos and send them to another device chosen by the attacker.
On October 8, Apple released iOS 12.0.1 which specifically fixed the recent two bugs discovered by Rodriguez. While the first one was the VoiceOver iOS Accessibility feature hack, another one was Quick Look feature which gave documents access to hackers.
