Maximize Your Night Out with Your iPhone – Avoid These Common Mistakes!

If you’re planning to go out for a drink, be careful with your belongings. A man named Johnson was going to a bar in Minneapolis and stealing phones from intoxicated people. He would get their passcodes, steal their devices, and go on a shopping spree with their credit cards. To avoid this happening to you, don’t share your passcode with anyone and keep your phone with you at all times. Don’t leave it on the table and don’t connect it to public Wi-Fi or charging stations.

A new update for iPhones called iOS 17.3 will soon include a feature called Stolen Device Protection. This feature will require verification from Face ID or Touch ID when the phone is not at a familiar location. It will also delay certain changes to passwords and IDs, giving the victim time to notice the theft and inform Apple.

The Stolen Device Protection feature will be available next month when iOS 17.3 is released. But if you can’t wait, you can install the beta version of iOS 17.3 and enable the feature now. Just be aware that using the beta version might cause certain features to stop working and you will need to have a backup in case you want to revert to the previous version.

So, remember to protect your phone and be aware of new updates to keep your device safe!
