I have CE on my Apple devices. I have recently discovered that Apple does not provide an option to block a factory reset of a device. Have any of you had this problem? How did you deal with it?

Where am I?

Hi Tom! 

Thank you for reaching out to us here in the forum. 

Apple provides free parental controls (Screen Time) for iPhone® and iPad®. If you set up Screen Time on an iPhone®/iPad® and a Screen Time passcode, then the device will automatically require the Screen Time passcode before factory resetting. 

I suggest your ally/partner sets up Screen Time on your device so that you cannot factory reset it. Here are some helpful support articles about Screen Time:

I hope this helps,
