    Mine only works if I press my thumb hard and only if I do so horizontally (thumb parallel to the bottom of the phone). If I do that, I get about a 95% success rate. Anything else gets me a 10-20% success rate. It makes it really hard to unlock in the car! I have found that it gets worse over time, so I just delete all my fingerprints about once a month and enter them again. A PITA, but it works better when I do this.

    I would delete the prints you have stored and run the set up again.

    Mine works I'd say 95% of the time, with the occasional time where I'll hold my finger there and it simply doesn't recognize it until I press the home button again.

    After a little over a month of having my Gold iPhone 5s, the Touch ID is still working GREAT. Just added my left thumb print yesterday ...SMILE

    All I can say is that I am glad that I didn't buy the 5s just because of the Touch-ID feature! If I had I would have been bitterly disappointed.

    I can set it up OK to three of my fingers, I test it and it works fine pretty much every time, I wouldn't expect it to be 100%. The next day, it has become extremely unreliable and frustrating. Nearly every time it fails, no matter which of the selected fingers I use. I have deleted the saved finger prints and set them up time and time again. Still the same.

    It could be because the weather is cold here and my skin is dry, but as they were the same when I trained the sensor, I would still expect it to work better than it does.

    The only times I notice it not work is when I get out of the shower and I have a tendency to take long hot showers so my finger print will be distorted. Other than that I have not had an issue.

    Not sure if it's me or not but I found it works better if I use the ball of my thumb. I work for a living lol so my hands are a bit rough. The tips of my fingers are not that great so I have had better results doing it this way.

    Mine never worked well and it was really frustrating. I just realized that I wasn't doing it right...I was leaving my thumb on the button too long. Now that I've corrected my "touch" it works much better.

    It's never too late to learn! LOL

    @ zerog46

    Having used the Touch-ID for I while, I completely agree with your comment.

    I have found a vast improvement in the success rate if I use the 'ball' of my thumb or finger. I am sure getting to like it better now!

    I had a similar issue, but after switching to using my index finders exclusively I've had a pretty easy time with it.

    Yes, simply because I do not utilize it hence it works perfectly fine

    It works good for me and at times it would either fail or just not recognize me holding my finger there which on my next lock it works again but I think it might be due to the smudges

    Perfect here. Do you put your finger inside your nose? May be you just have something else on your finger and it shouldn't be there

    I've come late into this convo but my experience with Touch ID has been very positive.

    No problem at all.

    No problems at all after almost three weeks. A little tip is to setup 2 prints of the finger you use the most. Gets more accurate on different angles. Love it.

    I was noticing this yesterday. I added a second reading of the thumb I use most and now it opens on the first try. So now I have a normal print and a dry print. Lol. It worked. 😜
