★ 10 Strikes and You're Out — the iOS Feature You're Probably Not Using But Should

My fear was that the 10 strikes included Touch ID or Face ID errors, not just passcode attempts. The description of the setting clearly says 'passcode attempts', but when Touch ID fails, you're shown the passcode screen where trying Touch ID again fills the passcode in which is probably what confused me.
