Verizon has launched a free hotspot on its iPhone 5 devices, enabling you to enjoy a wide variety of mobile data plans without ever touching your phone.
The feature is available only on Verizon phones, but it’s designed to be a quick and easy way to unlock an iPhone 5s with a fingerprint scanner.
You can get started with the new unlock feature by typing the word “iPhone” in the address bar, but you can also use the phone’s home button or a physical button that sits on the bottom of the device.
Verizon’s unlock feature works with iPhone 5 and iPhone 5C devices, but the new feature is also compatible with iPhone 4S and iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G.
The iPhone 5 has a fingerprint sensor on the back, so if you’ve ever used a fingerprint reader, you’ll quickly learn that unlocking an iPhone doesn’t require touching your device.
You’ll need to swipe on the phone or tap the home button to open up the settings menu.
You’ll be prompted to set a PIN for the unlock process.
You can set it by typing in the PIN and entering it into the phone, but in this example, I used a combination of the letters “A” and “O,” but you could also just type the letters as numbers.
Once the phone is unlocked, you can then select “Open iPhone 5.”
Verizon will also prompt you for a passcode and password to log into your account.
You don’t have to enter it on the first attempt.
