Why do I sometimes get “Your passcode is required to unlock iPad”?? Won’t let me use Face ID to log in
I am PARTICULARLY sensitive over iPad passcodes. When I was on my honeymoon in Dec/Jan, the bluetooth keyboard in my bag was still connected to my iPad. Apparently as I was walking around for hours, the keyboard was continually inputting wrong passwords. When I took my iPad out of my bag the next day, it was locked because of too many incorrect password attempts. I had to wipe the iPad when I got home and I lost a few Procreate drawings.
Now that I’m back home, every few days or so when I take my iPad out of my bag, Face ID does not work and it says I have to input my passcode. I no longer connect to my bluetooth keyboard so it’s not the wrong password thing happening again.
Is there something like where if you don’t use your iPad for 24 hours Face ID won’t work and you need to use a passcode? I don’t understand why Face ID is disabled every few days. Basically what are the situations where it won’t let you use Face ID and you have to use a passcode to unlock?
I don’t mind using the passcode but I’m worried something is happening again where my iPad will get locked and I’ll have to wipe it again.
