    When I purchase something I don't get the touch option, I still get the "sign into iTunes" thing.

    Help!

    If I'm not mistaken, after 48 hours of not using your fingerprint for purchases in the app or iTunes Store then you have to give permission again. Kind of annoying, but I'm sure there's some sort of reason behind it

    it actually gave me the option to use my fingerprint last night. Make sure you have that option set to ON from the settings/general/passcode&fingerprint

    I'm experiencing the same thing. Didn't know about the 48 hours rule. It kinda sucks because I only buy things about once or twice per week, sometimes less than that.

    It should be changed to 2 weeks. 48 hours is too short. Not everybody is rich and buying things constantly.

    They have a 48 hour limit to prevent thieves or the whatnot.

    Prevent thieves from using your fingerprint?

    Personally I think you should be able to set the time. I would choose always allow my fingerprint.

    I've made purchases greater than 48 hours apart and I've always been able to use the FP scanner to authorize the purchase.

    I believes it's 12. Which to me is backwards. Getting into the phone should be 12 and the store 48. Or both twelve.

    Or better yet, let us decide.

    I don't get why you have to verify your print at all for the App Store. If I already used my print to unlock the phone, why would I need it again to download an app, let alone a FREE app. Why you have to enter a password to download a free app is beyond me. I'll unlock my phone for you and save you the trouble.

    How does one set up finger print scanning for the lock screen ? Initially setting up the phone I didn't activate it but after setting up a pass code I went to set up the finger print scanning but when I go back to the lockscreen it doesn't show me the finger print scanning option only the passcode. Any help appreciated. Thanks!

    Turn on "Passcode Unlock" from Settings>General>Passcode & Fingerprint>Fingerprints

    Just press the home button to wake it up, then leave your thumb or whatever finger you used on the button. It should unlock.

    Agreed. It would be nice if you were automatically verified for everything once the fingerprint is scanned until the phone is locked.

    48 hour rule? Is this documented somewhere? Because I've had to enter in my password the same day for some purchases, even if I scanned my fingerprint hours or minutes earlier.
