How to Fix iPhone Asking for 6-Digit Passcode after iOS 15 Update
In this article, we will teach you how to fix iPhone by asking for 6-digit passcode after the iOS 15 update.
You have recently upgraded your iPhone to the latest version of iOS 15, and the iPhone is asking for 6-digit passcode after the update? Unfortunately, it leaves you confused and upset since you may have never set up the 6-digit passcode or the iPhone fails to recognize the passcode you enter and still asks you to enter the correct passcode.
Here are lists of ways to troubleshoot iPhone asking for 6-digit passcode after the iOS 15 update:
If you never set any password or confirm that you entered the correct password, you can try to force restart your iPhone, which will fix the convulsions on the updated iPhone.
Force Restart iPhone 6s and Earlier:
- Press and hold the “Home” and the “Wake/Sleep” buttons simultaneously.
- Release the buttons once you see the Apple logo on the screen.
Force Restart iPhone 7/7 Plus:
- Press and hold the “Wake/Sleep” and “Volume Down” buttons simultaneously.
- Then, release the buttons until the Apple logo appears.
Force Restart iPhone 12/11/X/8/8 Plus:
- Push the “Volume Up” button and release it quickly, and press the “Volume Down” button and release it instantly.
- Then, Push and hold the “Side/Power button” until you see the Apple logo on the screen.
A default password may bypass the iPhone asking for a 6-digit passcode problem if you have never set a screen passcode for your device. This has been proven to be useful for many users. For example, the iPhone default passcode could be 000000, 111111, or 123456. Input that 6-digit passcode one after the other and check if it works for you.
