Your Apple iPhone contains valuable user information, such as your emails, photos, and payment details, and you can also protect your phone with a password. This article discusses how protecting your iPhone from harmful users from using it.
If you prefer, the passcode is a six-digit code, but you may rather employ a custom alphanumeric password. This isnt recommended for security reasons.
In this article, you will learn how to alter your Apple iPhone passcode and how to unlock your iPhone if you have forgotten your code.
How to change your Apple iPhone password
Open the Settings app. Scroll down until you see Touch ID & Passcode. Select this option and enter your current entercode when requested.
Next, scroll down again to find the Change Passcode option. After doing this, you''ll be asked to enter your old passcode. Note that there are additional advanced options that allow you to set up an alphanumeric passcode or a four-digit passcode if you press the Passcode Options.
Once you have entered your new passcode, you will be required to verify it. Input your new passcode once more, and you have now changed your Apple iPhone password. Don''t forget it!
How to reset your Apple iPhone password
If you''ve forgotten your Apple iPhone password, there''s no simple way to get a reminder sent to you or to reset the passcode. Your iPhone must be locked, which deletes all your data on your device. However, if you make a recent backup, you may restore your data from iTunes or iCloud.
To perform the reset, you need a computer with iTunes installed. If you have not already access the software, you may send your iPhone to an Apple Store or an authorized partner, who can reset your phone for you.
The version number for the removal of an iPhone differs slightly. Start by disconnecting your iPhone from the computer.
For iPhone 6s and earlier, hold down the Top or Side button until a slider appears on your phone for powering off. While holding down the Home button, connect your phone to the computer. This will load the recovery screen and you may delete your iPhones data.
Hold the Side button until a slider appears on your screen for controlling off your iPhone. While holding the Volume down button, connect your iPhone 7 to the computer. Follow the instructions on the recovery screen to erase all iPhone data.
For the most recent iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus, and the iPhone SE second generation, hold one of the volume buttons and the Side button at the same time. Now, while holding down the Side button, connect your phone to your computer. After a few minutes, the recovery screen will appear on your iPhone. All data will be deleted.
