If you’re planning to buy an iPhone 7 and have it plugged into a security system for your home, it’s important to make certain that the system wiring goes through the device itself.
Apple says it will connect the system to a secure outlet, but it’s unclear if that will prevent an accidental loss.
In an Apple support forum, a user with the name “PandaBear” explains that it is important to use a system that can provide an outlet to avoid a potential loss.
“If the security system fails due to poor wiring, it can be a real concern,” he writes.
“This is especially true for Apple phones that use standard security connectors.
You might want to use something like an iPad with a USB-C cable, as that’s usually much easier to access than a standard security connector.”
Here are a few suggestions to ensure your security system will function properly: If you have a security outlet that’s plugged into your home (as opposed to your garage), make sure it has a “USB-C” port.
The Apple Security Forum says it’s OK to connect the security outlet to a standard outlet, such as a garage outlet.
It also says that if you connect it to a USB outlet, make sure the USB-A port is in the “charging” state, otherwise you could get a device disconnected.
If you don: You should check with your local hardware store to see if the security connector is plugged into the outlet itself.
You should also check if the outlet is plugged in properly.
If the outlet does not work, check the outlet’s wiring and check that the security connection can be disconnected without damaging the device.
Check to see that the outlet plugs into the charging port correctly, or that the connection is secure.
If it doesn’t work, you should check the security plug and cable on the outlet.
Apple also recommends that you use a secure security outlet if the device has a power adapter that plugs into an outlet that is not a standard-style security connector.
