Step 1: Accessing the Settings

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app on your iPhone 13’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon.

Step 2: Navigating to the Face ID & Passcode Settings

Once you have entered the Settings app, scroll down until you find Face ID & Passcode. Tap on it to access the Face ID settings.

Step 3: Authenticating with Your Passcode

Before setting up fingerprint recognition, you will need to authenticate using your passcode. Enter your passcode when prompted to proceed.

Step 4: Enrolling a New Fingerprint

In the Face ID & Passcode settings, scroll down until you reach the section labeled Fingerprints. Tap on Add a Fingerprint.


  • If you have already set up fingerprints on your device, they will be listed here. You can manage and delete existing fingerprints from this section as well.
  • You can add up to five fingerprints on an iPhone 13.

Step 5: Positioning Your Finger Correctly

To ensure accurate fingerprint recognition, follow these steps:

  1. Clean your finger: Make sure your finger is clean and dry before proceeding.
  2. Place your finger: Rest your finger gently on the Home button, making sure to cover it completely.
  3. Adjust your grip: Follow the instructions on the screen to adjust your grip and position your finger properly.

Step 6: Scanning Your Fingerprint

Once you have positioned your finger correctly, your iPhone 13 will begin scanning your fingerprint. Lift and rest your finger on the Home button as instructed until the scan is complete.


If you are having difficulty scanning a particular fingerprint, you can tap on Add a Different Fingerprint to start over or try with a different finger.

Step 7: Completing the Setup

After successfully scanning your fingerprint, you will see a confirmation message. You can now use Touch ID to unlock your iPhone 13 or authorize purchases by simply placing your registered finger on the Home button.


Congratulations! You have successfully set up fingerprint recognition on your iPhone 13.

This convenient feature allows for quick and secure access to your device. Remember to keep your registered fingerprints up-to-date and manage them from the Face ID & Passcode settings whenever needed.
