We have already seen a number of the new features that will be available in Apple’s iOS 9 and now we have some more information on some security improvements to the OS.
At the moment Apple’s iPhone and iPad come with a four digit passcode, this will change in iOS 9 to a six digit passcode on newer devices.
All of Apple’s iPhones and iPads that use their Touch ID will be upgraded to a new six digit passcode, of course the use of a passcode will still be optional on your device.
The reason this has been done is to improve the security on the iPhone and iPad, the four digit code comes with 100,000 possible combinations and the new 6 digit code will have more than 1 million possible combinations, making it much more secure.
The new 6 digit passcode in iOS 9 will be available in the iPhone 5S, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, plus the new iPhone models when they launch later in the year.
