People are just realizing hidden iPhone button gives you huge free perk for long list of apps – how to find it | The Sun

IPHONE users have been informed of a helpful tool that lets them lock certain apps behind a passcode.

Apple has revealed a slew of new features with the release of its iOS 16.4 software update.

One of the tools helps users lock specific apps behind a passcode or Face ID.

The new tool utilizes Lock Screen automation and essentially locks your phone when a specific app is open – such as a banking app.


To try this new feature out, first head to your Shortcuts on your device.

After you have opened that up, tap the "Automation" tab at the bottom of the screen.

From there, select the plus (+) button in the top-right corner, then tap "Create Personal Automation."

Scroll down and click on "App" and then make sure to toggle on "Is Opened" on the next screen.

Once you have done that, tap "Choose" and select an app from the list that you want to lock down.

After you have selected an app, tap on "Done."

Next, toggle off "Ask Before Running" and then tap "Don't Ask" in the pop-up prompt.

Finally, you can tap on Done and your personal automation will be saved.

This same Lock Screen action can also be utilized by macOS 13.3 for added security on your desktop and MacBook.
