Manage fingerprints and settings

Follow these simple steps to manage fingerprints and settings on your iPhone 5s.

Use Settings > General > Passcode & Fingerprint > Fingerprints to:

  • Enable or disable Touch ID for Passcode or iTunes & App Store.
  • Enrol new fingerprints.
  • Tap Edit to rename your existing fingerprints.
  • Swipe to delete a fingerprint.

If you have more than one fingerprint enrolled, you can touch a finger to the Home button to see the fingerprint to which it is linked in the list. If your finger matches, that finger in the list will be briefly highlighted.
