    I have yet to get the fingerprint ID to work as it should, I think the line of work I am in with dirty hands all the time affects the ID process.

    I removed the original fingers a few weeks ago. The new registrations have been working perfectly. Think I also now have a better "feel" for how much pressure and finger/thumb surface area is needed to accurately engage the sensor and home button.

    I forget that I have Touch ID. I had it turned off for the longest time, then decided to turn it back on. Even now, 9 times out of 10 I plug in my 4 digit code. The only time I have noticed that I use it is when I buy music.

    can you use a four digit code if you have touch ID enabled? I thought it required a passphase.

    Is it me or is it working smoother in iOS 7.1 b4? I tap the homebutton and my iPhone is awake.

    It seems to work well unless you have rough fingers. I bass fish a lot and my hands exposed to the elements. My prints are kinda jacked up most of the time so unfortunately Touch ID doesn't work well for me.

    Well mine has gone down hill.
    After applying the tips in the video, it worked well for a couple of days.
    Now, I'm successful maybe 2 out of 10 tries.
    Good Luck

    I sometimes have to use the passcode to gain access as it completely fails to read my print.

    Just for this phone today and it's the first one that I can stand to actually lock thanks to touch ID. I think the trick is how well you ate it up. If you're sloppy when you set up the prints it may not work as we'll. I set up five prints and they all work flawlessly. I'm impressed by how fast it is!

    My Touch ID works perfectly until my hands get sweaty than I can't get it to read my print until I wipe off the home button and clean my hands.

    Mine works very well! When I set it up I was sure to include different angles of my print. When I go to unlock it, I can have my finger sideways (horizontal) on the button and it'll unlock it.

    How's your Touch ID experience been so far? Working flawlessly? Occasional glitch or problem? Or not working at all?
    I've learned that if your fingers are even the slightest bit sweaty or dirty it's a no go, I've learned if it doesn't work, wipe thumb/finger on jeans/shirt whatever and rescan usually a flawless thing

    it really just depends on my finger, if there is moisture or really dry, it will have a hard time reading it. what helped me alot is, i registered my right thumb three times since i am right handed, and i registered my left thumb twice. ever since doing this, it has been working 95% of the time!

    Default Is Touch ID working well for you?

    I wash my hands a lot throughout the day also because they get dry I need to put cream on them a lot. I guess this is why Touch ID has always been a problem for me. Also even when using it I never get the option to use it for App Store purchases. I've tried overtraining it as shown in the previous video recommended & it works ok for a bit but then stops. Guess it still in its early stages. Hopefully by the iPhone 6 they will have sorted some issues they've found while collecting user data since it was introduced. Great idea when it works though.

    Considering I've got eczema, I'm surprised that it works 95% of the time for me. I'm quite impressed. I should register another finger and see if it'll stay this accurate...

    I think this is my problem as well.
