My iPhone 5S has "Require Passcode" set to "immediately" - with no other option. How can I set the timeout longer? Looks like a bug, not a feature ;-)


I've turned off the "Require Passcode" and turned it back on - same story. I haven't yet tried deleting my fingerprints. But it seems that even if I'm choosing to use the fingerprint reader that I should have the option of setting the timeout to 5 minutes or 15 minutes like I can with a keyboard passcode.    

iPhone 5s, iOS 7
