AppleInsider reports that according to Apple, the average iOS device user unlocks their iPhone or iPad approximately 80 times per day. The information was actually revealed last week during a widely reported conference call between several unnamed Apple executives and assorted journalists that was primarily about security issues. However, this particular part of the conversation was not picked up until Monday, when Ben Bajarin, head of primary research at analysts Creative Strategies, reported on the details on Techpinions.
The Apple executives and engineers also revealed that 89% of customers with Touch-ID-enabled devices had set up the feature to recognize their fingerprints and unlock their device. Bajarin says that this is pretty close to his own data, which found that around 85% of iOS device owners use either Touch ID or a passcode to safeguard their device.
Bajarin noted that the Apple executives at the meeting were particularly keen to use the phrase “balancing security with ease of use,” and repeated the phrase frequently during the meeting.
