Apple backs down from barring widow her dead husband's passwords


It can get complicated so to simplify this at home my wife and I decided to make sure all our devices have the same PIN to unlock (phones, tablets etc) and that we would put our primary email address password into our respective password vaults so that in the event of something going tits up we'd have a good chance of being able to reset credentials - you can reset most forms of authentication as long as you have access to the primary mailbox associated with the account. We also make sure we only use answers to those personal questions (like maiden names etc) that both of us know the answer to.

Not perfect but it will do for now.
