    Got my iPhone 5s three days ago and so far touch ID has worked almost flawlessly. Love it!

    It always works for me and has never missed although even updating to 7.1.1 it does have it moments of being a bit slower than Apple claims speeded it up and had better recognition. I might delete and redo it as I use my right thumb only it still works great.

    Saw this on another site and it seems like iMore found out about that article. Here's the link to make Touch ID work perfectly "every time". It's supposed to always work.

    I'm in the process if trying it again, and thus far, it seems to be working well...

    Works pretty well for me. Sometimes though when the fingertips are a bit oily, I have to try it once or twice more than normal. But even then it works quite well. I seem to have developed a natural habit for it.

    When iOS 7.1 came out it was almost perfect but since the latest updates it's starting to be a little bit suspect again.

    I love playing with other people's phones, especially if they're iPhones. Also, every time I pass an Apple store/retailer, I stop and play with the devices in there. I don't actually have an iPhone, hence why I have what my friends tell me is a creepy obsession with them.

    They all worked perfectly except for two I have tried, both which really shocked me. One because it was just a few months old and refused to work at all, and the other because it was a display at an Apple store. But I have tried Touch ID on many, many phones and I'm very impressed with it.

    Also, through my fleeting experiences with all those iPhones, I found a neat trick though that allows you to save two fingerprints in just one slot. You do the normal setup but you alternate two of your fingers. I don't know if this will deteriorate faster, but all the times I had tried it, it quickly recognised both without error. It worked with up to four fingers for me.

    I went through 4x iPhone 5s samples recently and each one detected my fingerprints flawlessly. On my current 5s I have had it fail a single time in two weeks when my thumb was soaking wet and only half on the fingerprint reader lol.

    I timed the time it takes me to unlock phone from screen on to homescreen with no security (no passcode or fingerprint) vs with fingerprint and it's the same. Based on that I would say it's a very successful feature.

    I just got my refurbished iPhone 5S.
    The one I bought was not working right. TouchiD was the problem. Less than 70% successful.
    Now, the refurbished is working 100%.

    Just got a 5S a couple days ago and trained it to recognize both thumbs and one other finger and it's worked flawlessly for me.

    I have not had too many issues with my second 5s. My first hardly ever worked...

    The one issue I am running into now is that Siri keeps turning on from time to time as soon as my phone unlocks. It turns on and off for a split second... Strange.
