APPLE VS ANDROID FEATURES AND VULNERABILITIES 12 I believe the problem with an iOS phone by Apple is that it needs to be locked down immediately so if the phone falls into the wrong hands there is no access to the vital information contained inside. I myself have lost my cell phone many time and was in a panic of not implementing a feature like this so because I did not lock my phone down I was susceptible to having criminals have access to my phone. Simple way to make the iOS phone more secure is quite easy. “T he first suggestion from CNET is to ensure that your iPhone locks soon after you turn off the display. You can change the amount of time it takes for your phone to lock in going into Settings tab, Touch ID & Passcode, Require Passcode , where you will be presented with a few options. I personally have my phone lock immediately after I hit the power button.”(8)
