How do I get rid of failed attempts on iPhone?

Sadly, there’s currently no built-in way to disable Apple’s passcode lockout feature in your iPhone’s settings. You can disable the “Erase Data” option for ten failed attempts, but that just saves your device from being wiped.

What happens after failed 10 attempts iPhone?

If you have this option selected, your phone will erase all the data after 10 failed passcode attempts. Once this data is erased, it’s gone; however, if you’ve been backing up for your phone with iCloud, you can restore it from your most recent backup information. You can also re-download any apps from the App Store.

How can I Erase my iPhone after 10 failed attempts?

There is another option: you can completely wipe your iPhone or iPad after 10 failed attempts. (Make sure you keep backups if you enable this, though.) This option is off by default. To turn it on, first open the Settings and then tap “Touch ID & Passcode”. You will need to enter your passcode to access these settings.

Is there a way to remote wipe an old iPhone?

The old device has still not responded to a remote wipe request via Find My iPhone, so I presume that will never happen. On the new device, I have turned on the “Erase data” setting in the Touch ID & Passcode settings: “Erase all data on this iPhone after 10 failed passcode attempts”.

What happens if I Wipe my Apple phone?

Activation lock happens regardless of the content on the device. You are protected since any wiped phone needs to check in with Apple’s activation servers to determine if the device was purchased through DEP or is covered by an existing activation lock.

Why do I need to enable erase data on my iPhone?

This means the device will not only get disabled at a certain point but it will also delete your private data to ensure it doesn’t get into the wrong hands. To enable Erase Data option and erase all data on your iPhone after 10 failed passcode attempts follow the steps below.
