Hit the button five times and then look at the phone and then hit cancel.

>It’s also worth noting that there’s no real way to tell that Touch ID has been disabled in this manner.

Other than visibly hitting the button five times and then looking at the phone and hitting cancel.

Police and a robber will already know this and make sure to allow you to take the time to act in such a manner.

But I will keep it mind to be the first thing I will think about in the seconds it takes to be robbed or arrested.

Great feature. I'll make sure to share it with all of my friends and family.

A "phony" PIN that opens a generic home screen would be better imo.

It should also work with the middle finger. :)

Who cares when any current iPhone can be unlocked with a $500 device.

you generally have plenty of warning when you're going into customs. plenty of time to disable touch id.

It's easy to make sure your device cannot be brute force broken. Instead of the set 4 or 6 numerals, chose alpha-numeric. There's no way to tell how long the password is with this enabled, and it can make the brute force technique take years to figure.
