Those of you with a new iPhone 5s will have already started adding multiple fingerprints to conveniently unlock your phone and enter your Apple ID password with just a touch. The problem? Apple only allows you to store five fingerprints — unless you use this workaround.
When you store fingerprint data, Apple tells you to repeatedly place one finger on the home button and repeatedly tap until it gets a clear picture. Rather than following directions, YouTuber Note Suwanchote found that you can just alternate throughout your entire hand with each tap in order to store them all. While it takes quite a bit longer, you can fit an entire hand’s worth of fingerprints into one storage spot, allowing you to store (potentially) up to 25 prints. We don’t know what kind of impact this has on security, and if it confuses iOS enough to allow other people’s fingers to unlock your phone, but it seems relatively useful if you want to unlock your device with any of your 10 digits.
