Some how, some way, my screen time passcode was either corrupted or “set and forget”.
In attempting to reset it, I got the “Error 9”.
I tried four times.
Took a break for dinner and was going to call Apple support. But, I thought “let’s try once more”. And, WOW, it worked.
I’m pleased that everything was restored and I was able to turn off “screen time”.
But why didn’t it work the first four time?
Doesn’t inspire confidence!
