How to Use Touch ID on iPad Air/Mini/Pro

Touch ID is Apple's bio-metric fingerprint authentication technology. With it, the Home button can unlock your iPhone or iPad. Besides,it grants your access to secure apps and authorize purchases with iTunes, the App Store, and even Apple Pay. Now, it works on iPhone 5s or above, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, or iPad mini 3 or later.
Here I want to show you with three parts:

Part 1. How to Set up Touch ID

Before you can set up Touch ID, you'll need to make a passcode for your device. Then follow the steps:
Step 1. Clean and dry the Home button and your finger.
Step 2. Click"Settings" and you can find "Touch ID & Passcode" button, tap it and then you would need to enter your password.

Step 3.Tap "Add a Fingerprint" and touch the Home button as you normally would.
Note: Touch but don't press your finger to the Home button. Hold it there until you feel a quick vibration, or until you're asked to lift your finger. If you have trouble enrolling one finger, try another.

Part 2. How to Delete a Fingerprint from Touch ID

Deleting Touch ID fingerprints is very easy. Just scroll down and tap on "Touch ID & Passcode", and you may need to type in your password. Then tap on the fingerprint you'd like to remove. Just like that, deleting Fingerprint is done.

Part 3. How to turn off Touch ID for the Lock screen

Step 1. To turn off Touch ID, you need to go to "Settings" and tap on the "Touch ID & Passcode" button. Enter your passcode if needed.
Step 2. Tap on the On/Off switch for iPhone Unlock to turn off Touch ID for the lock screen.

Note: You can also disable Touch ID for iTunes and App Store purchases at the same time if you'd like.

Every coin has two sides. Touch ID provides very strict security measures. But it also makes the iPad repairs more complicated. If your Touch ID is broken, or accidentally touched off a root cable of Touch ID when split screen, perhaps you will no longer be able to use the fingerprint recognition on your iPad.
