Did anybody else get this today? So strange. When I selected "Continue" it also said "You must enter a 4 digit passcode only"

I have a strange suspicion this is related to the iPhone unlock issue that Apple is tied up in with the FBI - That's just pure conjecture though.

This isn't Apple. You have a profile installed from a company or educational IT department, or you put a profile on it yourself. They're the ones requiring the reset.

I must change my passcode every 60 days because I have my work email on the phone and the company Exchange server forces the policy. On previous iOS versions, there was always the option to switch from the 4-digit code to complex alphanumeric ones when the request to change the code popped up. When it popped up a few days ago, however, this option wasn't there anymore (I had to set a temporary 4-digit code first, and then change it to the real alphanumeric code in the settings). Must be a bug that was introduced in one of the recent iOS versions.

Ahhhhhhh - I am doing beta testing for a developer. That's probably what forced it. I thought it was so strange. Thanks guys!

Are you testing via TestFlight? That shouldn't happen.
Yup. Testing via TestFlight. I have no other VPN or profiles associated with this device at all. That's the only thing it could be in my mind.

I really liked having a 6 digit pin. I'm going to try to manually change it back and see if it lets me.

It let me go back to a 6 digit pin. Strange little fluke.

So weird. Now that I think of it a friend had this happen to them a few months ago. Dunno if they ever figured out what it was.
