    Hi All - I need some advice. I believe this started with the iOS 9 release. At purely random times, when I unlock my phone first time in the morning, it won't accept my fingerprint and requires my 6 digit code to unlock. I'm assuming the phone is rebooting overnight or is something else causing this? This only happens randomly and always the first time unlocking in the morning. This has never happened at any other time of day.

    Any thoughts?

    Delete Unnecessary Apps
    Remove all the useless apps which you are no longer fond of and consider them worthless. Clearing them off will not only bring more space for iPhone but also make the device work faster.

    Are you saying that space is the issue? I'm using 40% of my space and I've run into this before. Most recently, about a week ago. I do not think it has to do with space.

    I have plenty of space left on my 64gb iPhone. Also, I only keep the apps I use on a regular basis.

    There have been threads about people experiencing similar things for some time. Not sure if everyone is experiencing it because of the same underlying thing, but it's something that various people have certainly come across.

    Sorry, I'm not a native speaker. I meant; I have the same problem, except it happens with my 6 Plus :) So yeah.

    Thanks everyone. I appreciate the responses. I'll take it to Apple. Coincidentally, it happened again this morning.

    My 5S does the same thing. On random mornings it will say I need to enter the passcode after restarting.

    It is a warranty replacement I received a few months ago just before my AppleCare expired. I *think* my previous faulty 5S had the same problem but I can't remember.

    I'm on jailbroken iOS9.0.1(same as the previous 5S) so I just assumed it was related to some tweak or other. I tried using CrashReporter but it never found anything related to the restart.

    Is yours jailbroken as well?

    Interesting. This happens rarely (less than once a month) for me, but it happened this morning as well. Did it happen for anyone else this morning?

    Wondering if it might be something server-side that Apple did.

    Which iOS version are you running?

    Also, do you have iCloud backup turned on?

    No it's not jail broken but it sounds like it's same thing I'm experiencing.

    I'm on the beta. 9.2 beta 3 last night. Upgraded to beta 4 today.

    iCloud backup is off; I don't backup betas to iCloud in case I have to replace my device on the go.

    Hmm. Because I can't imagine anything else iOS-related that would cause the device to reboot. I haven't encountered this issue ever on my 6s or 5s.

    Oh, but wait. I have a great idea.

    Check your logs and see what you find logged for when you were sleeping that resulted in a reboot (Settings > Privacy > Diagnostics & Usage).

    Great suggestion! For the day in question it says System Memory Reset. Not sure what to look for. It also says that system memory exceeded limit.

    Bingo. Mind setting a picture of that? It may be faulty RAM, actually.

    Alright, so observe the "eventReason" which states that the memory exceeded a limit, probably the idle page limit iOS has. That's bizarre, but that's what caused iOS to crash. Interesting.

    I'll bring to Apple and find out if they will fix or replace.
