Location Based iOS Security

Apple Invents Intelligent Location-Based Security for Home & CarPlay

I used to think I'd want this: a set of preferences that let me define regions in which my phone would, after being unlocked once, remain unlocked for the next hour, two hours, eight hours, until I left, whatever…

Then Apple went and invented TouchID, and I don't care about this anymore.

Not even a little.

After all, someone could easily take my phone while I'm still in that "safe spot" and snoop through or delete things. With TouchID, my phone basically acts as if it's unlocked anywhere without compromising on security.
