iOS 17 Adds Undo Passcode & Reduce Eye Strain Feature
As the iOS 17 made its debut at WWDC 2023, Apple is upping its game with new features and more on board. The latest addition to the lineup is the ability to undo passcode and Screen Distance changes to reduce eye strain.
iOS 17 Gives You 72 Hours to Cancel a Passcode Change
Starting with iOS 17, you can reset your change passcode in case you forget it within 72 hours of setting it. Imagine a situation where you forget or enter a wrong password, you will see ‘Forgot Password?’ choice on the bottom. Tap it and you should get ‘Try Reset Passcode’. The feature allows you to enter previously remembered passcodes and set up a new one.
It also allows you to change the ability to add a previous passcode where you set it to expire immediately after use. This is a safeguard in case someone else gets hold of your iPhone and tries to reset the password.
iOS 17 For eye strain
Because we often forget to limit our exposure to the screen, overexposure leads to eye strain and in severe cases, nearsightedness. With the iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, Apple worked on a new feature called ‘Screen Distance’. It will help reduce pressure on the eyes and reduce the risk of vision loss as well.
It uses the iPhone’s TruDepth camera to measure the distance between the screen and your eyes. If the phone is too close for a long time, you will receive a notification “The iPhone is too close”. You will get a warning if the phone is closer than 12 inches and for more than 20 minutes. It is aimed at reducing the strain on the eyes due to overexposure to the screens as it may cause an inability to focus.
iOS 17 is slated to arrive across iPhones later this year with the iPhone 15 series coming this October. It will come across iPhone XS and newer with the Beta already available to Apple Developers. Last year’s iOS 16 is currently available on 81% of all iPhones supported so far.
