How To Quickly Show The Fingers Assigned To Touch ID

When Apple introduced the new iPhone 5s, I really liked one feature in this amazing device and probably most of you know it. Yes it is Touch ID security feature. This amazing and powerful feature is a mix of hardware and software that solves a real problem. I use Touch ID each and every day on my iPhone 5s, and I find myself slightly disappointed every time I try to hold my thumb on my iPad mini and nothing happens.

Touch ID allows users to store up to five fingerprints. In turn, any of the registered prints can be used to unlock your iPhone and authenticate purchases associated with your Apple ID, such as App Store purchases.

Check out this video for how things work:

So what should you do ? Firstly go to Touch ID settings section by going to Settings---> General--->Touch ID & Passcode---> Touch ID. Once there, you’ll see a list of fingerprints under the fingerprints heading. You can have up to five prints assigned to Touch ID, but you don’t have to assign all five if you don’t want to.

Once there, simply touch the Touch ID sensor like you normally would when you want to make a purchase or unlock your phone. If the finger you used is currently one of the registered prints listed under the fingerprints section, you’ll see the a gray flash to signify the assigned print.

After identifying the fingers associated with the assigned prints in Touch ID’s settings, it’s best to assign names to the fingers for future identification. In order to do so, tap the edit button in the upper right-hand corner of the page, and this will place you into edit mode. You can then tap on the names of each finger, and assign your own custom name.

It is a very important thing to know such simple things on your device... Are you using Touch ID sensor ?
