    I've noticed a similar but different message: "Your passcode is required to enable Touch ID." I got this today, despite having used the device last less than 12 hours ago. I suspect this is caused by a Touch-ID or security related process crashing. The message is similar to the "Enter Passcode to Enable Touch ID" shown when fingerprint reading fails 5 times.

    If you device were to restart overnight, you'd get "iPad requires your passcode after restarting." Or I think it's "Passcode required after restarting." on iPhone. The messages seem slightly different between iPhone and iPad, but you get a different message if the device restarts.

    I've been getting the same early morning when I wake. But I usually wake a bit earlier and check my lock screen for time and notifications. Then 30 or 40 minutes later it says to "Enter Passcode...". Odd!

    This is happening on my iPhone and iPad pro. I send feedback every time it happens.

    This behavior is the rule for me if I sleep my iPad Pro (9.3.2) for more than a couple of hours. Uness it's a situation where I sleep it for just a few minutes (answering a phone call, answering nature's call, etc), I am forced to enter my password. It has been this way since I bought it, regardless of resets and a restore and updates. I have a strong password; this annoyance is driving me towards not having a damned password at all! That's probably the opposite of what Apple was trying to accomplish with the 48 hour requirement.
