    Because you probably set a password (either unknowingly, or forgotten that you did) when setting it up the first time.

    You'd be better off seeking a definitive answer in a dedicated Apple forum

    Indeed. I don't see the point of asking an Iphone question in a Windows 10 forum.

    I agree with Samuria. I have an iPhone 14. If you manually select to do the update, then it will ask you for your PIN code to allow the update. Yet, if you let it update automatically overnight while it's plugged in the charger, it wouldn't ask you for your PIN code. I cannot understand the exact logic behind why it's designed this way.

    So yes, like stated above, it's best to ask at an Apple forum.
    Search for the MacRumors Forum, and ask there. You'll get a much better answer than my post.
