The explanation is found in the fact that many users have woken up in recent days with the strange request from the iPhone to have to re-enter the PIN code. However, it doesn’t look like a common reboot. If we access the battery data, we see how the mobile appears to have been turned off for several hours. What has happened?
Different versions of iOS affected
A priori, the most direct relationship could be established with the update 17.0.3 which solved the overheating problems that affected the latest iPhone model. However, it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with it. And, if we go to Reddit, we can see how there are a large number of users who have been affected with all types of iPhone models and versions. Some of them even without having updated to iOS 17. Therefore, it doesn’t seem to have much to do with it at the moment.
In addition to this, the problem is not just that the iPhone has restarted.

Waiting for official explanations
