InstantTouchID: Unlock your iPhone with Touch ID from sleep mode

November 23, 2015 — by Hawon Nguyen0

One of the many things that iPhone and iPad users are concern about are the facts they might break their power and home buttons. These buttons are important than anything else because if something goes wrong, they can save your life. For example, if the device is put into recovery mode, you will need the power button to turn it back on or else the device become useless until you install third-party software on a computer to fix it.

To protect both power and home buttons and smoothens the unlock procedure, users can install InstantTouchID, a new jailbreak tweak that lets you unlock your iPhone with Touch ID while it’s still sleeping. What that means is that you don’t have to use either home or power buttons to turn the device on and then use Touch ID to unlock it. This tweak makes the unlocking process faster by enabling Touch ID instantly.

When InstantTouchID tweak is installed on your iPhone, there will be several configurable options in the Settings app. If the device failed to recognize your fingerprint, it will wake up or vibrate and other general behavior.
