    Default Here's How to Use Touch ID Even After Immediately Rebooting Your iPhone or iPad


    One of the gripes of using Touch ID on your new iPhone or iPad is that you can't use it after you reboot your device; instead, you're asked to enter your numeric passcode once before you're allowed to start using your Touch ID sensor again.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called BioBoot by iOS developer N104 is now available in Cydia that fixes this gripe and lets you use your Touch ID sensor to unlock your iPhone or iPad even immediately after you reboot your device.

    BioBoot includes Activator integration so that you can toggle the tweak's functionality on or off on demand. Apart from this, there are no other options to configure.

    BioBoot only works with devices that have Touch ID functionality, like the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, the latest iPad, and the latest iPad mini. The tweak also requires iOS 8 to be installed. If you're interested in giving it a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now. Check it out!

    Name: BioBoot
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1.2, Touch ID device
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: N104

    This is a nice tweak for sure. Are there any plans of extending it to your iTunes password or is that already done?

    Yeah I would like to only be asked for touchid for app store. I also would like to unlock AND use the app store with touchid while at the same time have the lockout be 5 minutes instead of immediately.

    Hm the passcode is also required after the iDevice is not used for 48h.

    My feelings exactly.

    It's really not that much of a hassle to re-enter your passcode after a hard reboot. I can still use TouchID after a respringing, which is 95% of the time I ever need to restart my phone. It rarely gets turned off.

    Agree, and having it for iTunes seems a no brainer to me. Apple missed it. Jailbreakers / Devs get it done...

    48 hours?! I wish I had the mental fortitude to put my phone down for 48 minutes.
