    Phone Battery

    Try a hard reset (on/off switch & home button at the same time), it is not unusual following an update but a reset will bring it back to normal.

    Adding a protective passcode to open a specific document?

    There are many apps, I use one called Bitwarden. Search on the App Store for password managers.

    FYI: What Caused Problems

    Sorry, I should have realised we were on the iPhone forum. Solution is the same, instal iTunes on your MacBook and plug your phone in via the charging cable, you can then backup to your MacBook.
