nakedsecurity.sophos.com: Passcodes are protected by Fifth Amendment, says court
On the IPhone, if you press the power button 5 times fast it will disable the fingerprint/Face ID feature so a code is required. Meaning, always do this when there is a possibility of phone confiscation, including when going through airport security.
The 5 time fast is/was used to call emergency services. You have to be careful what phone you have...
How to use Emergency SOS on iPhone 7 and older
Rapidly press the side button five times.
Good point! Mine has to be powered down to require a passcode in addition to my fingerprint.
I implore everyone to always turn off and place your phone out of sight for any traffic stop. That can save you a lot of grief in the right set of circumstances.
Correct about the emergency function, but you have to do one more step for the emergency call to happen. Just do the 5 press and then press cancel. It locks the phone to code only. On the XS (maybe the X also) you can hold power and volume up at the same time for about 3 seconds and have the same result.
That 5x power button thing does nothing for me on my iPhone 8 Plus with iOS 12. I have to hold Volume Up + Power Button for a few seconds.
Powering it off would be the most secure. Case in point, until recently, it has been possible to image the device via the Lightning Port, and then the government can keep a copy of the image indefinitely, return your phone to you (if they choose to), and wait until a future vulnerability is disclosed with which to break into the copy of your phone.
