    I have issues when my fingers are wet or after I've been in the pool or a bath. Other than that, it works flawlessly.

    You need to set up Touch ID before it can been used if you did this and it failed then make a Genius Bar appointment at your closes Apple Store

    So far its been working fine for me. I would expect an 80% success rate when using it to be acceptable in for me, but have yet to have a single failure. If it gets too frustrating I'll just switch it to the passcode.

    Just got my gold 5S yesterday and immediately set up Touch ID. No problems whatsoever!

    The only time I have an issue is if my finger was wet and I did not dry it properly. Otherwise, Touch ID works for 100% of the time. I make sure to keep my hands moisturized during this time of year, so that might be why I am not experiencing any of the failures that other users are.

    I also have never had to redo the Touch ID to make it work. To me it baffles me how there can be so many different experiences with one feature. You would think it would be more consistent.

    I have sweaty palms (and living in a tropical country with summer all year round doesn't help either), so I just use a simple passcode (e.g. 6666) for simplicity, given that crime rates in my country are pretty low (really, lol.).
    I do occasionally change it, if that helps?

    I don't recall ever having to enter my pass code because Touch ID failed to work. It won't read sometimes due to wet fingers, but drying them takes care of that. Very convenient it is.

    I bought my 6 in mid March and never had a problem. Reads my fingerprint 100% of the time. :-)

    It has its good days and it's bad days. After a while it seems just retraining all my saved fingerprints helps it kick back into gear. It is definitely an awesome new tech. But I think it has a way to go.

    Mine works fine when not connected to the charger but when connected the touch ID doesn't work the first few times, seems to have started after iOS 8.3.

    I have always problems with touchID. It seems to be my fat finger, that covers the whole display (of course I'm joking)

    How's your Touch ID experience been so far? Working flawlessly? Occasional glitch or problem? Or not working at all?
    Well, I just got this phone yesterday and I'm using Touch ID a lot more than I ever thought that I would. Works great for me and I think, without reading anything else in this thread, that people probably don't move the thumb around when initially setting it up.

    I did and have no issues on the 4 fingers that I use.
