Crime shows are very popular and they teach us about many things. For example, that DNA and fingerprints are unique to each human being. Interestingly, this feature of human anatomy is used in today’s technological world. For example, Apple’s iPhone lets you use your fingerprint to identify your smartphone. So how does Touch ID work?

Setting up your Touch ID is relatively easy, although it does take a few steps. First, you need to make sure your home button and finger are clean and dry. Then, tap Settings, Touch ID & Passcode, and enter your passcode. Then, tap Add Fingerprint and hold your device as you hold it usually, but touch the home button. Hold your finger on the home button. You will need to press your finger several times on the home button until the phone registers the unique pattern of your fingerprint.

Touch ID can be used with iPhone 5s or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 or later. The unique individual pattern of each person’s fingerprint means your phone now has your unique signature and that nobody else in the world can access the Touch ID feature on your phone except you.

You can use Touch ID for many things, including making purchases. For example, you can use Touch ID instead of your Apple ID password to make purchases in the iTunes Store, App Store and iBooks Store.

Touch ID also lets you use Apple Pay everywhere American Express contactless payments are accepted. Users just hold their iPhone near the reader with a finger on Touch ID… and the transaction is done. The card details are never shared, they are not even stored on iPhone. That’s why Apple Pay is a safer way to pay.

Touch ID is a technological breakthrough that allows for greater safety and security. The amazing technology also adds a personal touch to owning a device. Now, on top of a passcode or password, you have a personal way of identifying yourself, one that no one can guess or fake, your unique, personal fingerprint. The new technology is indeed groundbreaking.
