How to Enable Lockdown Mode in iOS 16 & iPadOS 16 [Step-By-Step Guide]

Apple is slowly becoming a privacy-oriented company that respects its users’ privacy as much as it respects its own in recent years.

Continuing on this trend, Apple, along with the advent of iOS 16, iPadOS 16 and macOS Ventura, has introduced a new blocking mode for all of its devices that promises to protect any user’s device from spyware or other malicious attacks.

It works by limiting what your device can do to block some of the most common backdoors and channels used by cybercriminals and malicious agents to infiltrate phones and computers.
