If you don’t already know, Stolen Device Protection heightens the security of your iPhone and Apple ID, by requiring Face ID or Touch ID to perform certain actions on your iPhone – without defaulting to using your passcode to access important data.

Security Delay will now require your Face ID or Touch ID, a waiting time of 1 hour, and an additional successful biometric authentication before sensitive operations such as changing of your device’s passcode or Apple ID password can be done.

No more worrying if someone has access to your passcode to use your iPhone without your permission.

Apple Music

This is super helpful especially if you’re hosting a dinner party, or even planning a wedding playlist.
