♪ Music playing ♪ Touch ID uses your fingerprint to quickly and securely
unlock your device. Here’s how to set it up. To start, tap Settings. ♪ Then tap
Touch ID & Passcode ♪ and enter your current passcode. ♪ Then tap Add a Fingerprint and place the finger you would
like to add as a fingerprint on the home button. Hold it there until you feel
a quick vibration or until you’re asked
to lift your finger. ♪ Continue to lift
and rest your finger slowly making small adjustments to the position
of your finger each time. ♪ While still in Settings, you can setup what you want
to use Touch ID for. In addition to unlocking
your Apple device and authorizing payment
using Apple Pay, you can also use Touch ID
to quickly download apps, music, and more
from the iTunes and App Store. You can even add
additional fingerprints to make using
Touch ID a little easier. Just tap Add a Fingerprint. If you’re unsure
which fingerprints you’ve added, just press a finger
on the home button. The fingerprint name
will highlight if it’s been registered. Now let’s tap the fingerprint
we’ve just added to give it a custom name, in case you want
to add or remove a fingerprint in the future. ♪ And now your device
will be more secure. For more helpful tips like this, subscribe to
