• [HOW TO] Rename your Touch ID fingerprints


    Many iDevices these days are fitted with Apple’s fingerprint touch sensor AKA Touch ID,
    You can set Touch ID to purchase App Store apps, pay for in-store items with Apple Pay, unlock private data in third-party apps, get into the device by scanning your fingerprint and more.

    Enrolling multiple fingers is a great way to improve Touch ID accuracy and make your experience better. By default, iOS names each new fingerprint as “Fingerprint 1,” “Fingerprint 2,” “Fingerprint 3” and so forth. Something that you may not have known is that you can actually rename your saved fingerprints to something more descriptive so you can distinguish them.


    How to name to your Touch ID fingerprints


    1) Launch Settings on your iPhone or iPad.

    2) Tap Touch ID & Passcode in the top-level menu and type in your passcode to access the section.

    3) Tap a saved fingerprint to rename it.



    Tip: To delete a fingerprint, swipe it and then tap the hidden Delete button.

    To use Touch ID instead of your Apple ID password for making purchases in the iTunes Store, App Store and iBooks Store, make sure iTunes & App Store is turned on under Settings → Touch ID & Passcode.

    If you cannot enable this feature, double check that you are signed in with your Apple ID and password in Settings → iTunes & App Store.


    How to quickly identify saved Touch ID fingerprint


    1) Launch Settings on your iPhone or iPad.

    2) Tap Touch ID & Passcode and type in your passcode.

    3) Touch the Home button with one of your enrolled fingers. The matching fingerprint in the list will be highlighted briefly, as shown below.



    Without resorting to tricks, iOS lets you enroll up to five fingerprints. According to Apple, each new print “might make fingerprint recognition take slightly longer” so that’s something worth keeping in mind.
