Take that, iPhone thieves! iOS 17.4 will make Stolen Device Protection even better


It’s been just over a week since Stolen Device Protection debuted with iOS 17.3, but iOS 17.4 will reportedly bring further improvements to the brand new security feature.

Stolen Device Protection essentially acts as a last line of defense against iPhone thieves in possession of your passcode. When activated, your iPhone will require Face ID or Touch ID authentication for sensitive actions like viewing passkeys, erasing content, turning off Lost Mode, and so on. For especially sensitive actions – like changing your Apple ID password or disabling Find My iPhone – Stolen Device Protection requires two instances of biometric authentication; the second coming one hour after the first.
