    So today i was messing around with the fingerprint sensor on the 5s and noticed that when you set up your fingerprint, if you use every finger on your hand while setting up one finger - You can unlock your phone with 5 fingerprints while only using one fingerprint space available, If you wanted to you could enter 25 different fingerprints that way, instead of the mandatory 5.

    This was covered earlier already, you can even try to use things that aren't fingers (toes, nose, nipples, etc), but kudos to you nonetheless for trying to bring the information to the community! :)

    Thanks! I didn't know it was already posted. Thanks for the information.

    I assume this would result in lower reliability, as the Touch ID sensor is probably assuming your five separate fingers are all one finger, and would be more likely to get confused on future scans.
