    Able to disable TouchID?

    A question for people already using an iPhone 5S: are you able to disable this TouchID and instead still secure your iPhone the old fashioned way with a PIN?

    Here's a link from the German CCC:

    My 4S is getting a bit old and worn out and I was thinking about buying a 5S, but I have to say that this so called 'security' has left me feeling very uneasy.

    Indeed it is! :mad:

    Yes you can still use your passcode and no touchID. :)
