Forgetting your own passwords can seem funny. But it often happens with a group of people. They constantly forget passwords within a few days after setting. It is actually a kind of habitual impact. If you are that type, we have a piece of good news for you. There is a new secret trick to unlock an iPhone after forgetting the password.
It is basically a new built-in feature on iOS 15. From now on you can unlock your iPhone or Apple ID with the help of your most trusted friend. A new feature called Account Recovery Contact has been added in the latest iOS update.
It will also help a lot to recover a hacked iPhone. The contact you select for recovery can help to regain your access to the affected phone. Your friend can generate a recovery code for your account. With that code, you can easily set a new password.

You can enjoy this facility only if your phone is running on the latest iOS version. The same goes for your recovery contact person. So before starting up, you must check this.
