How To Keep Accessory Mode On

When you’re out and about, do you ever find yourself wondering what your phone is doing? Maybe you’re checking the time or checking for notifications, but is that all you’re doing? If you’re like most people, you probably leave your handset in accessory mode a lot. But why? And what are the consequences? In this blog post, we will explore the reasons why we leave our phones in accessory mode and what the consequences are. From decreased battery life to security vulnerabilities, read on to learn more about why it’s important to switch off accessory mode when not needed.

What is Accessory Mode?

Accessory mode is a feature that allows you to use your iOS device without having to enter your passcode. This is helpful if you need to leave your device unattended, or if you have an emergency situation in which you can’t unlock your phone. To turn on accessory mode:

1. Open the Settings app on your device.

2. Tap on General.

3. Under “Passcode Lock” type in “Accessory.”

4. If you have previously enabled Touch ID, then under “Touch ID and Passcode” you’ll need to set a passcode for accessory mode as well as the default passcode for your account (if applicable). You will also be able to set a timer for how long your screen will stay off after being idle before entering your passcode again.

How to Turn on Accessory Mode

If you have an iPhone 6 or later and want to keep accessory mode on even when the phone is locked, there are a few things you can do.

To turn on accessory mode:
1. From the Home screen, tap Settings.
2. Scroll down and tap General.
3. Tap Accessory Mode.
4. Toggle the switch next to “When Locked” to “On.”

Tips for Keeping Accessory Mode On

Accessory mode is a great way to keep your phone from being too complicated. By turning it off, you can keep everything simple and easy to understand. But sometimes you might need to turn accessory mode on. Here are some tips for doing just that:

When you first get your phone, make sure to read through the user guide carefully. Accessories like cases and chargers can interfere with the phone’s ability to enter and stay in accessory mode.

If you’re using an accessory that requires a battery, be sure to charge it before using it with your phone. If your battery needs to be kept charged, try not to use your accessory when the battery is low.

If you have trouble getting into or staying in accessory mode, restart your phone by pressing and holding down the power button until you see the Android logo appear onscreen.
