Apple now introduced the biometric “Touch ID” onto the new iPad, latest iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. Touch ID is also on the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
What is Touch ID? Touch ID is a little biometric finger print reader on the new iOS devices:
- iPad Air 2
- iPad Mini 3
- iPhone 5S
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
With Touch ID, you can now do more with just the touch of a finger, you can log in and verify identity in logging into apps. Touch ID is that little metal ring around the home button on the new iOS devices.
With the introduction of “Touch ID” onto the new iPad we have added something amazing. With three taps you can get into a medical record. You will touch once with Touch ID to get into the iPad, tap the drchrono EHR app, once the app is launched, then with Touch ID, get into their EHR. Only three taps, no typing a passcode.
