About to be arrested? Reboot your iPhone...
Thought I'd share this interesting bit of legality I spotted on Lifehacker:
The Virginia Circuit Court ruled this week that you don't have to give up your passcode to police if you're detained. That's great news, but apparently fingerprints are a different story, so if you have Touch ID enabled, you could still be forced to unlock your phone.
So, if your iPhone 5S, 6 or 6 Plus is secured by TouchID, you and your pinkies are in trouble. However, whenever you reboot your TouchID iPhone, it requires that you input your passcode before you can unlock it the 1st time.
Obviously, the Virginia district court doesn't yet have jurisdiction in the UK,
But, you know...
