How To Disable Your SIM PIN On iPhone

SIM cards usually require a PIN (Personal Identification Number) to unlock in your phone so that u can connect to mobile data, make calls and use the internet. They also prevent unauthorized people from using your phone in a situation where your phone is stolen or lost.

The option to disable your iPhone’s SIM card PIN is usually on the device’s SIM PIN menu screen. Unlike the Passcode security feature, which prevents unauthorized access, you are only prompted to enter the SIM PIN when you restart your iPhone.

Some people don’t want this feature on, maybe because they keep forgetting their PIN every time. Here is how to go about it. But you might also want to look at changing the SIM PIN
