iOS 9 Tips and Tricks -Touch ID

What is going on guys Apple Fox here and the Touch ID sensor has been introduced with the release of iPhone 5s couple years ago and has its place in iPhones today as well. So in this video I’ll be showing you some tips and tricks on how to use it properly and basically how to get even more out of it. So with that being said, let’s get right into it.

As you surely know the touch ID can be used for many different things like unlocking your phone all the time, paying for Apps and songs on iTunes, Apple Pay and with the iOS 9.3 it can be also used to lock your notes which has been quite unusual for iPhones. Hopefully in the future it will be even more useful than it is now. But the problem is that you can add only 5 fingerprints into your iPhone or iPad which supports touch ID. But what to do if you want to add more than just 5 fingerprints? If are encountering this kind of problem, then I’m about to show you this really cool trick.

Okay so you just need to go to touch ID menu in your settings. Enter your passcode, and now go ahead and add a fingerprint. If you are not able to then remove one of the existing fingerprints. But you need to do it this way. Let’s say you want to have your right index finger and your right thumb to be a part of one fingerprint. So now place your thumb on the home button then place your index finger then thumb and do it just like this all the way to the end. When you get to the Adjust the grip section keep on doing the same. And now you’re done with basically one fingerprint that contains two of them. So as you can see i can unlock my phone without any problems using both of them. But i have to tell you that if you use Touch ID to make payments with Apple Pay for example, then i don’t recommend you to do it because i am not completely sure about the security of using this. Cause if someone had the exact same fingerprint as a combination of yours then it might not be very secure.
Another tip to improve your Touch ID is to double your finger.This means that if you use one finger all the time or very often to unlock your phone, it makes sense to make another record of that finger. That way your touch ID becomes more accurate every time you need it.

Have you ever wanted to unlock your phone when your hands were wet after you washed your hands or you just took an exercise and your hands are sweaty and your iPhone is not able to read your finger? Then you should try this. You need to make your finger a little wet by getting water on it but not too much and now add a fingerprint. It doesn’t always work but if it does, then it’s very useful. It works better if you have the second generation Touch ID on iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. The same thing applies in winter when your hands are cold and the temperature affects your skin so touch id has a problem to read your finger. You should try to add it when your fingers are cold and it should help.

When you’re in your settings and you don’t know which fingers are recorded in your iPhone or you don’t know which one is the one you’re looking for, then you just simply place your finger on the home button and it will show you which finger this is.

Another thing you can do and it’s very useful is to name the recordings of your fingers however you want. You can for example name it thumb or if you have a fingerprint of someone else in your phone then put their name as a title.

So that’s it. I really hope you like this video and i would be happy if it helped you to make your iPhone even more customized in terms of touch ID. So if you enjoyed this video make sure you hit that like button and if you are interested in Apple related videos, then you should definitely subscribe to my channel because i’ll be posting more videos in the future.
