Already next month, the release of the new operating system iOS 11 is expected. It includes many changes and innovations. In the fifth beta, users discovered the emergency call function to the rescue service by pressing the power button five times. It turned out that Apple also added with the latest update the ability to quickly lock the Touch ID fingerprint scanner so that no outsider can access your device without your knowledge.

Previously, to lock Touch ID, you had to restart the device and place the wrong finger on the scanner several times. After that, you can unlock your smartphone only with a password. Now Touch ID is locked automatically when using the aforementioned SOS mode. If necessary, you need to quickly press the power button five times to lock the fingerprint scanner. This can be useful in emergency situations.
