If you want to be able to answer a call or reply to a text message from your laptop, here’s what you do:Tap SettingsTap Phone (or Messages)Tap Allow calls on other devices (or Text Message Forwarding)Toggle which devices you’d like to receive and send phone calls or messages on2.

Hidden within your phone settings is the option to erase all data on your phone after 10 failed passcode attempts. Although this potential for data loss may sound scary, it’s highly unlikely a significant other or child would accidentally erase all your data. The reason being because after the fifth failed password attempt, iOS requires a 1-minute timeout before you can try typing a password in again. After the sixth try, you get a 5-minute timeout. After the seventh, 15 minutes, and so on and so forth.
This means it would take more than 3 hours to enter 10 incorrect passcodes. The only person spending that much time probably has bad intentions, meaning you’ll want your personal data to be erased. Here’s how to turn the setting on. Tap SettingsScroll down to Touch ID & PasscodeEnter your passcodeToggle Erase data setting to the on position. 4. Take a Slofie
