Are you worried that someone has cracked your iPhone’s passcode? Or simple just want a new security pattern? If this is the case, you may want to try a different and stronger passcode. Let’s take a look at how to do it on your smartphone.

Here’s a simple guide you can follow.

iPhone Passcode Change

When you launch Settings on your iPhone, you will be able to start the process of updating your passcode.


If your iPhone has Touch ID or Face ID (depending on your phone model), you must select “Face ID and Passcode” from the Settings. (This can also be Touch ID and Passcode)


To proceed, you will need to enter the current passcode on your iPhone.


You will need to scroll down the open page and tap “Change Passcode” when it appears.


You need to type the new passcode you want to use when the “Enter Your New Passcode” message appears on the screen.

In case you want to use a different type of passcode, you can tap on the “Passcode Options” menu.


“Passcode Options” provides three types as shown above:

  • Custom Alphanumeric Code: By choosing this option, you will be able to set a passcode that contains both letters and numbers.
  • Custom Numeric Code: By selecting this option, you can set a passcode that will only contain numbers. You are not allowed to use letters in your message.
  • 4-Digit Numeric Code: You can use this option if you would like to create your four-digit numeric passcode.

Upon reaching the “Verify Your New Passcode” page, you will be asked to enter your new password a second time.

There you have it! You may now change your passcode anytime.
