The next big Apple update, iOS 11, is just around the corner. The new version of iOS will include a multitude of new features and enhancements, including the ability to deactivate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. The most important and relevant of this function is that it is accessed from a hidden menu after pressing the power button five times in a row.
Currently, in the testing phase, iOS 11 will be ready for an OTA update for compatible iPhones and iPads in the fall. Specifically, the same day Apple officially unveils the new iPhones, both the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and iPhone 8. At that time, the new version of Apple’s software platform will provide the user with a new and interesting feature capable of deactivating the Touch ID fingerprint sensor.
Deactivating the Touch ID fingerprint sensor will be possible on iOS 11
As it begins to spread in the specialized media of the bitten apple, Apple will introduce iOS 11 the ability to temporarily deactivate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. This is a method that will prevent access to the smartphone through the fingerprint reader temporarily and not as a system adjustment.
According to MacRumors, this is a hidden menu that is accessed by pressing the power button repeatedly, specifically five times. It really is the way to access the iPhone SOS function, from which the user can display your medical information collected in Apple Health, as well as instant access to make an emergency call.
However, this menu also includes the ability to turn off the device or, here comes the interesting thing, deactivate the Touch ID fingerprint sensor temporarily. This capability is possible if you click on the Cancel button at the bottom of the screen. In this way, the fingerprint sensor is disabled and to unlock the iPhone you will need to enter the PIN Code required in the previous iOS configuration.
