  • Congratulations! Basically, a mind-blowing achievement. Takes a tremendous amount of passion and unwavering commitment and work ethic to pull off 500 episodes. Especially given that this is very much in addition to all of the other awesome work happening around iMore day and night. Cheers to the next 500!

  • Rene, Everything I keep reading about the passcode that the FBI wants to break seems to assume that it is either a four or six digit numeric passcode, which obviously has a very limited number of combinations to try, yet iOS will gladly let the user set an alpha-numeric (and symbols) password of much greater length. It seems like no one talking about this possibility. Since the iPhone 5S has Touch ID it seems to me to be highly likely that it could be set that way. Currently on my iPhone with iOS9 I am running an unlock passcode of over 40 characters (nobody at Apple stores seem to know the max characters one can have in ones passcode, I guess 64) without a problem as with Touch ID I rarely have to enter it. I hope you will bring this up the next time you discuss this on a podcast (either iMore or MBW, which led me to iMore) as I think it is an important point. Perhaps you can also confirm that if one uses a numeric only passcode that you are limited to a max of six digits or if it is possible to have more as well. This would mean that the FBI would not know what the max number of digits is in the passcode even if only the numeric keypad came up on the login screen. I enjoy your comments on the podcasts and I really looking forward to your next ones with all that is happening with the court case being postponed.
