This iOS 11 Feature Swiftly Disables Touch ID On The iPhone


iOS 11 public beta has been available since June, but there are still surprise features cropping up, including a newly spotted one that temporarily disables Touch ID. Unearthed by a Twitter user and confirmed by The Verge, the feature is activated when you rapidly press the power button five times. As a refresher, Touch ID works by scanning your fingerprint to unlock your iPhone or iPad. It's a quick way to access your device without typing in your personalized pin. However, there are times you may want to quickly and discretely disable Touch ID, and current methods take time. The most straightforward way up until this discovery was to turn off Touch ID in Settings, which requires multiple steps and looking at your device. Pertinent to all this is that Apple is expected to introduce facial recognition in the iPhone 8. So-called Face ID may replace or be in addition to Touch ID, so having a way to rapidly disable these unlocking measures with a few subtle taps could be a welcome security feature.
