Finish Touch ID Setup1 / 11
When you set up the iPhone SE it prompts you to train one finger for Touch ID. Now is a good time to finish setting this up so that you can use your thumbs and fingers on both hands to unlock your iPhone SE.
We recommend using a passcode on the iPhone to keep your data safe, and training the phone to use your fingerprint is a faster way to get into your iPhone. You can also use it to buy apps and music or to make payments with Apple Pay.
Go to Settings -> Touch ID & Passcode -> Enter your Passcode -> Tap on Add a Fingerprint. Follow the on-screen instructions to add multiple fingerprints to your phone.
At the top of this settings option you can also turn on Apple Pay use and iTunes & App Store. We recommend using these. You will need to enter your Passcode to turn on iTunes and App Store options.
Once this is all set up you can unlock your iPhone, buy stuff on iTunes and in the store using your fingerprint.
