Apple releases iOS 17.3 with Stolen Device Protection

On Monday, Apple introduced a new update, iOS 17.3, offering various enhancements like Apple Music playlist sharing and AirPlay support for hotel room TVs. The standout feature, however, is the Stolen Device Protection, designed to enhance the security of your iPhone and protect it from unauthorized access.

To access the latest update, Go to Settings, then General, and choose Software Update to get the most recent update. Click “Install Now” to start the download and adhere to the on-screen directions. 

To keep your information safe with Stolen Device Protection, you must use Face ID or Touch ID to view saved passwords. If you want to change important settings like your Apple ID password or device passcode, there’s an added security step. Unless your iPhone is in a familiar place, you first need Face ID or Touch ID, then wait an hour, and finally, complete another biometric check. This extra layer of security helps ensure that your sensitive data stays protected.

How to turn Stolen Device Protection on or off    

Activate Stolen Device Protection by enabling two-factor authentication for your Apple ID and configuring the following on your iPhone: a device passcode, Face ID or Touch ID, Find My, and Significant Locations (found in Location Services). To set up Stolen Device Protection, follow these steps:

  • Open Settings and select Face ID & Passcode.
  • Enter your device passcode.
  • Toggle the Stolen Device Protection switch to turn it on or off.
