Popular hip-hop musician and producer Kanye West may have started out as a talented and generally-liked musician, but recent years have seen his image deteriorate thanks to some unseemly public incidents and his airing of his political views. However, his music continues to entertain fans of hip-hop and rap, even as he repeatedly sees himself in embarrassing situations. The latest is the revealing of his iPhone passcode, which has been shown to be the rather easy ‘000000’.

West, during a meeting with US President Donald Trump, unlocked his iPhone X (or possibly XS – it isn’t easy to tell from the footage), while a camera was recording. He chose not to let Face ID do its thing, probably because he was either in a hurry or has simply not configured Face ID on his iPhone. While using the passcode to unlock, it’s easy to tell from the footage below that his passcode is just the number zero pressed repeatedly.

The Apple iPhone series needs passcodes that are at least six digits long, suggesting that his passcode is ‘000000’. It’s easily one of the laziest passcodes around, and as pointed out by The Verge, it’s one of those codes that prompts Apple to tell you to consider changing, because of how easy it is to guess or figure out. Nonetheless, Kanye West doesn’t seem to care much for smartphone security, which is really his prerogative if you think about it. Maybe he doesn’t have anything to hide on his iPhone.

During the meeting with US President Trump, Kanye West spoke about some rather odd topics, including having Apple build the ‘iPlane 1’, an aircraft to replace the Boeing airplanes that are currently in use as Air Force One, the official aircraft of the US President. It’s important to point out here that Apple is an electronics manufacturer that does not have any expertise – or indeed any perceptible plans – to build aircraft any time soon. Additionally, West pointed out that Apple is an American company, which can also be said of Washington-based Boeing, which manufactures its airplanes in the United States of America.
