    Question Touch ID intermittently responsive while chaging - Note: Aftermarket cable+charger

    Hey folks,

    So I've seen a few posts online from the 5/5S where people mentioned they had issues with the Touch-ID sensor while charging their phones. In many cases this included people using the OEM Apple charger & lightning-USB cable.

    I'm here to report that I am having a similar issue, but so far it only seems to happen with an aftermarket set -- specifically the Rocketfish Mobile brand, 2.4A USB Wall charger + 3.3ft cable.

    I haven't noticed this behaviour with either the OEM charger/cable or the Rocketfish cable plugged into my computer, seems to be more specifically caused by the AC adapter.

    As I said, it's intermittent -- the Touch ID sensor will activate, but often I have to hold my finger on it for a few seconds before it sees anything. Nothing else seems to be affected by this; my guess would be some sort of electrical interference caused by the charger since the port is right under the Home button/sensor...?

    Anyone else experience similar behaviour using either your OEM charging equipment or aftermarket? (I'm betting there will be a few...) My guess will be that this isn't something that'll be solved with software updates, as I didn't see any indication as such with the 5/5S postings...

    Don't worry it's happening to me also I guess it's a software issue.
