iPhone Wipe Warning Message Possible

Is there a way we can have a warning message pop up when the user is on their last passcode entry attempt? A lot of our time is spent reconfiguring phones after they’re wiped because the user kept entering the wrong passcode. If they can be warned that they’re on their final attempt and that another wrong entry will wipe the phone, it would be very helpful.

Not sure if this is something that can be done? Any advise or suggestions on what to enable would be great.
This is in reference to are iOS PIV Final/iOS PIV Pending policy and HHS My Workplace MDM - iOS GFE Prod policy.

How should it work?

User enters the wrong Passcode and on the last available attempt to enter Passcode before phone wipes itself, user receives a warning message on the display indicating that last attempt before device will be wiped.


Device prompts the user how many failed login attempts they have, and as the wrong passcode is entered, the number decreases until no more passcode entry attempt is available.

Priority Justification Inquiry/Question if this can be done.
