    Works perfectly for me. You've got to be very specific with how you set of your print. Adjust the angle of ur print a little bit to the left or right on every scan until the scan is done. By then the phone should have your print memorized in multiple p.o.v.s and be much more efficient.

    I received a hand me down 5s recently and my Touch ID is working fine. You do have to let the phone get a good read of the print you want. For both prints I set up I had to place my finger on the sensor at different angles about 4 or 5 times. But once it got the full print there was no issue.

    I registered all my fingers on it. Just in case the others are busy.

    Is using this feature actually worth trying? I mean, if something goes wrong with the feature while I'm away from my Macbook (I don't use iCloud to back up my device) and my iPhone gets reset I'd have no way to communicate with anyone in any way. Seems too risky to try out, IMO.... Feel free to convince me otherwise, though.

    When Touch ID doesn't work it reverts back to your lock screen where you can enter you lock screen code to proceed.
    Hope that helps.
    Good Luck

    Well, yes, most of the time Touch ID was a strange thing to me the 1st days, didn't even bother with it, then I allocated to some time to set it up,
    it's not that easy for a person who never used fingerprint readers before as you see on the internet but after a few failed attempts, done it.
    Sometimes when the reader is smudgy, or your fingers are wet/oily or something like, it might not work, then you have to enter a PIN.
    I'd give it an 8/10 so far

    Welcome to iMore! Mine works great as well. Never any issues at all on my 6s Plus. Plantfoot is an interesting name. Sounds like a rock band.

    Hi all just had a quick TouchID query

    Ive been using my 5S since 2014 , and recently with iOS 10 , I have found TouchID to be far less reliable

    I have registered and deleted my fingers multiple times , but still it now frequently fails to recognise my finger . It has not suffered any screen damage ( it is in spotless condition ) , although it has been used caseless

    Does anyone know if this is a software or hardware issue ?

    Any help would be appreicated
    Thanks

    It's damn near perfect. The variable is your finger(s) or thumb(s).

    I work in an office, but do a lot of home improvement and mechanics work on the side. I always use this feature. I only have to retrain after a lot of work with my hands changes my print slightly!

    Here's my advice: pick a finger, or thumb to use instead of training all of them. Train the same fingers or thumb (thumb works best for me) multiple times. It's an amazing piece of technology.

    @MECA2 yes i agree with you. I read an article multiple registers of the same finger/thumb. They even said it will speed up the read process. Is it true?

    I don't know this as fact, but I imagine the hardware has improved over time.
