The same thing applies for iPhone in case you ever leave your iPhone unlocked somewhere people won’t be able to access to certain applications, because you’ll have that second layer of protection. how to do this is gonna be using the screen time from iOS12 beta1.
Screen time the main purpose of this first off is a parental control tool for children, if you want to go ahead and have some parental control over their digital activities and of course for your digital health as well .

iOS12 Protect individual Apps with PASSCODE
How you can set the applications to be protected using screen time. The first thing you want to do is go into app limits this is where you can set limits on applications on how long you’ll be able to use those applications.
you can protect ios12 photos apps , music for example if you have an iPad laying around at home where everybody knows the passcode you have a secondary passcode and now when you click ignore it’ll give you the option for 15 more minutes or ignore for the entire day so with a 15 more minutes you enter the passcode it locks itself again no-one can get access to it unless of course they know the passcode. you can go ahead and remove the limit for the entire day if you wish to do so, what if you want to do individual apps , will also work for individual apps. the app will automatically lock itself . For example the imessages app you can add passcode in order to protect with a passcode and it will lock itself by same rules.
