Irvine’s Weekend Weather:  Another Mixed Bag

This weekend will be another mixed bag, with rain on Friday, mostly cloudy skies on Saturday, and rain in the forecast again on Sunday.  Temperatures will not reach 60 degrees all weekend so make sure the whole family grabs a jacket before leaving the house.

iPhone Tips by Jake Jacobs

Touch ID: Which finger?
If you registered a fingerprint with Touch ID but don’t remember which finger is registered in which FINGERPRINTS slot— i.e., is Fingerprint 1 your right thumb or left index finger? — here is how you can find out.  Then you can be sure that you rename, replace, or delete the right ones in the future.

  • Go to Settings → Touch ID & Passcode.
  • Type in your passcode.
  • Place a registered finger on the Home button.
  • Look for the label that changes color from white to gray.

Label each registered finger
Rather than using the technique, above, for identifying your fingerprints each time you need to update or change them, you can label them to make it simpler and faster to find the one you’re looking for. (And remember which and whose fingerprints are registered.)

  • Go to Settings → Touch ID & Passcode.
  • Type in your passcode.
  • Tap on the Finger you want to rename
  • Type in a new, more recognizable name for your fingerprint. (e.g., “Right thumb”)
  • Tap on the Done button.

Repeat the steps until all your fingerprints are labeled.

Register the same finger twice
I use my right thumb most of the time to unlock my iPhone. So I have registered my right thumb twice (in two FINGERPRINTS slots) which improves rapid identification.

Use Touch ID on other apps
Touch is invoked not only for unlocking your iPhone, but for Apple Pay, purchases in iTunes, iBooks, and the App Store. And now some third party apps will let you use Touch ID instead of having to enter a password. The Kaiser Permanente (KP), Dropbox, PayPal, Evernote, 1Password, and Scanner Pro apps will accept touch ID instead of having to type in the app’s password. Note that each app will have its own, individual password.

Happy Hour: Hopdoddy (3030 El Camino Real, Tustin Marketplace)

Hopdoddy recently opened a location in the Tustin Marketplace at the corner of El Camino Real and Jamboree.

They have a long happy hour, lasting from 3-6:30pm Monday through Friday.  The happy hour includes the Brew Burger special for $5, which includes a different burger each week, as well as a tall seasonal beer for $5 that also changes.  Each shareable appetizer is $5. I highly recommend the Buffalo fries for those who enjoy spicy cuisine.  If beer isn’t your thing, Hopdoddy offers $5 margaritas during their happy hour.
