    I'm one of those Dinosaurs that kept his iPhone 4s all these years. So yes, it has always had the code for entry - since day 1 when I bought it new. And yes, after all these years it still functions well. A testament to the build quality.

    I'm upgrading (finally) to an iPhone 7 in the Fall when they come out and look forward to upgrading to Touch ID, or whatever the iPhone 7 will have for secure entry.

    Upgrading from a 4s to a 7. Wow. That will be like going from a Volkswagen to a Bentley.

    Everyone who uses TouchID uses a passcode of course.
    It's *required* as soon as you turn on TouchID, which you'd be an eedeeoht not to use if you have a phone that can use it.

    Not sure your point? It's correct though, you need a code as backup to Touch ID.
    I think the point is that the question that starts this thread is poorly phrased, and most of the people answering are talking like they have a choice, when in fact they don't. If you enable TouchID (and you should), then you have to have a passcode.

    I do. Have both my thumbs and I'm thinking of adding my wife's just in case something happens to me. After all a married couple should not have secrets which we don't. I mean you never know really in the event of an accident or something.

    I have used a passcode on my phone until it was updated to allow for one that was alphanumeric. Yes, it can slow a process of rebooting the phone at those inconvenient moments but it gives me an added sense of security.

    True. To add, you should use a lengthy, complex passcode (preferably alphanumeric).

    Correct.
    But I still know people that don't use any lock at all ....

    I use both TouchID and an alphanumeric passcode (over 40 characters to avoid having to wipe the phone after 10 tries). I rarely have to use the passcode because of TouchID.

    I am curious if anyone knows the max number of characters that can be used for an alphanumeric passcode.

    I've always used a passcode; Touch ID makes it more convenient.

    I do mainly because some coworkers of mine were taking my phone and messing with it. Finally I got fed up with it and locked them out. They still take selfies but I don't care lol.

    6 digit passcode and fingerprint ID. Safe and secure.

    I use a passcode of about 15 numbers. It's Easy for me to remember when I can't use Touch ID.

    i use passcode and Touch ID..

    I guess if u don't use your phone for any personal data, u wouldn't mind not having a passcode..

    By the same token, would also then say, u also are not that concerned Apple and hacks with the FBI either, in that it wouldn't worry those users.

    I use either Touch ID or Passcode, depending on the iPhone6 plus recognizing my fingerprint.

    Touch ID with passcode, and nothing (no notifications, nothing) is available on my lockscreen (not even Siri).
