Did you know that your iPhone has a "burn" feature?

10 times, that's all it takes to incorrectly input your passcode for this feature of iOS10 to completely remove your data and lock the handset.
Why I hear you say, Isn't my passcode secure enough?
Although this quite frankly mad feature isnt for everybody (especially if there are inquisitive little fingers in your home), it does insure that personal data is as safe as it can be.
Quite simply we are our mobile devices, everything from our financial details and profile to where we're going and where we've been is stored and available, even cherrished family photos and videos are there to see. Essentially our phones and tablets are a digital profile of our lives, and never before has our data been as precious as it is now. So we need to protect that right?
How do I turn this apocalyptic feature on?
Follow these steps; Settings> Touch ID and Passcode * Enter Passcode*> Erase Data
As always the most important part of owning and loving these devices is making sure you have a back up!
