In my opinion, owning an iPhone (especially the latest model) nowadays elevates one to a near god-like status and automatically affords the holder an all access pass to any of the online worldwide cult-like forums featuring lovers of the device from various walks of life.

So if you are a proud owner of an Apple device (especially the iPhone) I salute you and here are a few tips to retain the ownership of your device just a tid bit longer.

Enable Passcode Lock
The passcode is a set of 4 digits that act as a barrier between contents stored inside the iPhone and those who want to access it. It is usually disabled by default so turning it ON would be a good beginning to fortifying your iPhone.

Settings > General > Passcode Lock > ‘Turn Passcode ON’
You will be prompted to enter a 4-digit code twice and then you are set to go.
