How Do I Register More Fingers to Unlock My iPhone?

When you use the Touch ID feature on the iPhone to add your fingerprint as a method of unlocking the device, it only asks you to provide one fingerprint, which means you can unlock the phone with that finger only. Luckily, it is possible to register more fingerprints to the system so that you can unlock your phone with Touch ID with either hand. Continue reading to find out how.

The Touch ID feature, which lets you unlock the phone with your fingerprint, can be found on the following Apple devices: iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3.

1. Unlock the phone, and go to Settings.

2. In the Settings screen, choose the Touch ID & Passcode option. Before you access the next section, you will be asked to provide a 4-digit passcode if there is one. This security feature is used to prevent unauthorized changes from being made.

By default, it will be named by the system. To give it a more descriptive name, simply tap on the desired item to change its name. Here, you will also find an option to delete the fingerprint if you want.
