244 – Keep Your iPhone Passcode Safe – With Guests Mike Potter, Chuck Joiner, and Jeff Gamet

In the most recent episode of In Touch With iOS hosted by Dave, he’s joined by guests Mike Potter, Chuck Joiner, and Jeff Gamet. We have a discussion on Microsoft’s intention to incorporate iMessage into Windows. The conversation then shifts to a concerning issue where thieves have been observing people entering their passcodes and then stealing their iPhones, leaving them locked out of their accounts. To combat this, they explore the use of password managers, particularly their favorite one, 1Password. They also delve into the topic of Apple’s Health VP, who discusses the future of Apple Watch and glucose monitoring.
