My mac has a feature called FileVault. In theory - if you don't have the password, you can't get access to the files. (Encryption).
To me - this feature should be sufficient on the iPhone to not need wipes.
By wiping - I mean the feature under Settings > Touch ID & Passcode > Erase Data.
What I see if that after a couple of failed password attempts, the password entry goes into warning mode, then it goes into complete wipe mode.
Why do you need wipes and encryption? (My work makes encryption the default and locks it in so you can't change it with a policy).
Where this gets concerning is when your kids are playing with your phone, not knowing that they're deleting all your photos.
My question is: What is the reason the iPhone wipes after a couple of failed password entries? (ie why offer this feature at all when the phone is completely encrypted?)
