By | March 17, 2013 · 0 comments

The Siri and Passbook work on the iPhone even if the screen of the handset is locked. This means that the users can even access their data related to passes stored in the Passbook and can even connect to the Siri. However, it opens the access for the unauthorized users and makes the access even easier. However, the users can protect the content by putting the password to guard the data and information.

This involves few settings steps and the data will be more protected and secure for the users. For this purpose, the users have to get in the Settings Menu. These steps are as follows:

  • Tap on the icon of the Settings application on the Home screen.
  • From there go to the General menu.
  • After this step, go to the Passcode Lock option and get entered into it by tapping on it.
  • Here, enter your passcode when asked.
  • Here, there is given an option in the handset which is titled as Allow Access When Locked. Go to this section and turn OFF the Siri and Passcode.

After performing these steps, the lock screen will work more efficiently with the Siri and Passcode applications. Now, the users have to enter the passcode before accessing the Siri and the Passbook.



This is the application that is used to handle the cord of different important documents such as the tickets, coupons, gift cards, credit cards and other important official documentations. To work properly with the Passbook, the users have to get some compatible applications. These applications will make the functionality of the Passbook even more efficient and effective. The users can have the applications like some Airlines supportive tools, Location Aware applications and tools, Fandango, Target, Walgreens and many others.

The application keeps on alerting the users about the place when they are somewhere around and where they can use those cards and tickets. This way the users can manage their documents and get benefits from them whenever needed.


The Siri application have the support for the following features like reading and responding to the emails, making calls, setting reminders and searching for the information. The users can even make purchasing of the cinema tickets through this application. Along with this, the users can also get the advanced additional support for the LTE which stands for the Long Term Evolution high speed mobile networks. There is working an algorithm that has the ability to track down the iOS devices and release the advertisements especially for them.
