    Today I left my wife's iPhone 6 in the hotel reception to charge it. When I returned to pick it up I realised that the iPhone was being charged using the PC.

    My question is, was it possible for the receptionist to browse through the iPhone's personal files through the PC or iTunes without him needing the password of the lock screen of the iPhone?

    If you unlocked the phone and then charged it, they can browse through the files.

    If you plugged it in while the phone was locked, they would need the unlock code.
