Touch ID Authentication on iPhone and iPad

Before you can set up Touch ID Authentication, you will need to make a passcode for your device.

Note: You can use Touch ID Authentication with an iPhone 5s or later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 3 or later. Make sure your operating system is iOS8 or higher. (Android devices do not support Touch ID Authentication.)

Set up Touch ID Authentication on your Apple® device

  1. Make sure that the Home button and your finger are clean and dry.
  2. Tap Settings > Touch ID Authentication & Passcode, and then enter your passcode.
  3. Tap Add a Fingerprint and hold your device as you normally would when touching the Home button.
  4. Touch your finger to the Home button – but don’t press. Hold the Home button until you feel a quick vibration, or until you are asked to lift your finger.
  5. Continue to lift and rest your finger slowly, making small adjustments to the position of your finger each time.
  6. The next screen asks you to adjust your grip. Hold your device as you normally would when unlocking it and touch the Home button with the outer areas of your fingertip, instead of the center portion that you scanned first. Note: If you have trouble enrolling one finger, try another.
