Touch ID is an awesome feature and has been the best implementation of consumer biometrics I have used. But for some it is troubling. For those who suffer the ability to train your Touch ID, in essance give it more data about your finger print would be benificial. Well Steve Gibson of  the Security Now podcast has stumbled across just that, an undocumented way to train your Apples Touch ID. I will embed part of the security now podcast showing Steve training his iPhone 5s, as well as a nice guide imore.com put together.

  1. Launch the Settings app and tap on General.
  2. Tap on Touch ID & Passcode and enter your numerical passcode when prompted.
  3. Now tap on Touch ID.
  4. Here you see a list of all your registered fingerprints. Place one of yourregistered fingers on the Touch ID sensor. The registered print will pulse grey. Continue placing and lifting each registered finger as many times as you'd like to train Touch ID further.
