    great suggestions but how to do this--4 character long press ???
    PS: I recommend to not use a PIN. Use a complex passcode. You have those long-press characters on the iOS and Mac keyboards, too, which means you can make a simple 4-character passcode that has over 3 billion possible combinations by using one of those characters. It also makes it a lot more difficult for something to see what you're typing in over a regular keyboard or a number pad.
    I have an iPhone 5 that’s currently locked out for the next few months because I forgot which pin i set for it and kept inputting the wrong one. 
    An iPhone 5? Oh my
    It was just being used as a remote camera to monitor the home while i was out, so not that big of an issue losing access to it. Just pointing out that the current delay seems to grow exponentially.

    No way Apple gets the demands they want this time.

    I’d expect a display timer set to “never” plus max brightness would lead to that. Physics just rules.

    I see a *lot* of users who have their screen set WAY too bright AND appear to have turned off display sleep entirely, sticking this giant expensive glow stick back into their pocket or bag with nary a thought.

    One fellow stuck his phone (screen still on) in his back pocket on a walk I was also on. I was behind him for 15 minutes and his screen was visible from a block away the entire time. This will, of course, also happen to Android users who override the default screen dimming settings.

    This may be but I’d expect users aren’t suddenly changing their use patterns from what they did prior. Unless they have, the question remains: Why are iPhone 15’s suddenly having problems?
    They aren’t, but it sure does make for a nice headline to compete against whatever is on the news cycle atm.

  • Apple plans to update iPhones in-store without opening the boxes

    What are they thinking? I’m just waiting for someone to hack this process and then to be able to jailbreak our phones without us knowing about it. 
    And said hacker is going to be unnoticed while keeping your phone touching his hacking pad during said hack?
