    Why doesn’t Touch ID work when I’m on the treadmill

    this really bothers me, I need to know why this is happening. Every time I’m on the treadmill Touch ID does not work when I have it lying down on the treadmill in front of me.

    How sensitive is the Touch ID on my MacBook

    I use it exclusively, and it never fails, so I question how accurate it is. No-one else is privy to my computer, but I'd like to be assured it's near fail-safe, just in case. I used to work at a place that required the whole palm to enter, and quite often I'd have to redo. My only basis for...

    Touch ID button

    I received a MacBook Air yesterday and my kid was messing around with the Touch ID button. I thought you could not press this down like an actual button but now it presses down just like the rest of the keys. Is this normal or has my kid messed it up? Thanks

    Authenticating System Preferences with Touch ID?

    I have been using Touch ID for a while, installing new software, enabling sudo auth, Apple Pay, login in. Sudo auth was a deal breaker actually, it is fast, safe and you can even enable some SSH features from Linux servers. But I can't change my privacy or login items without typing my pass...

    iOS 12 for iPad with its new gestures really have me wanting a new iPad with no home button and FaceID. I love the new home gesture but can't get over having to place my finger on the slow touchID button on my iPad Air 2. Is anyone else excited for a bezel-less iPad Pro?!

    iPhone X Missed Touch ID on iPhone X

    I'm disappointed. I love Touch ID. Touch ID is my favorite security for Tablet and Phone. iPhone X using Face ID instead of Touch ID. iPhone X (2017) has completely removed Touch ID Hi Apple, please add Touch ID to 2018 iPhones and iPads.

    Face ID - Skip the Lock Screen

    Some of us fly by the notification screen very often. I very much want Apple to implement THE OPTION, I stress the option of allowing a similar scenario to Touch ID's "rest to wake." Wake > Look > Home Screen. A completely hands free path to the home screen seems awesome.
