I really miss TouchID

Anyone else?

Wearing a mask on public transport makes FaceID useless! Oh how I long for TouchID occasionally!

I got the iPhone SE 2020 for exactly this reason.

Yeah, this is definitely going to influence my upgrade choice next round. If one of the new iphones has touch ID that’s what I’m getting.

I solve this by never leaving the house.

This will make leaving an iPhone 8 difficult. I solved this by keeping my “old” stuff.

I’ve started paying for stuff using my Apple Watch now.

I felt it was a gimmick feature when it first launched and never really used it as - it felt like a “look at me, aren’t I clever” sort of thing.

Now, with Face ID being so clumsy when masked in a shop, it is by far the best way to pay. Any feelings of looking strange have been far outweighed by the weirdness of 2020.

sound is super easy to fake… oh and not that much Corona here in Norway and almost no one wears masks and life is rather normal (restaurants, pools and clubs are open, whole company eats together at same table).
Helps that Germans (like me) and Norwegians are not part of the huggy kissy part of Europe.

Dislike Touch ID on my iPad Pro 10.5 since I have to raise my arm to use it when in laptop mode.

No wonder the Italians had such a hard time of it :slight_smile:

Same. I keep my mask on when outside 99% of the time in NYC and it’s been such a pain. I really am thinking about picking up SE. The combo of watch, AirPods, phone on the go is starting to sound better and better. Giving up the camera though would be really hard.

I switched to a 4 digit passcode that I can easily do with one hand. I know, I know, but I was going insane.

If I want to receive work emails I need to have a complex password :frowning:

Hopefully iPhones 12 will incorporate new Touch ID of iPad Air.

Well the obvious question here is, “Do you want to receive work emails?” :wink:
