    I guess my question is does your battery drain faster based on the failed fingerprint scanner attempts? Because my fingerprint used to work fine, but now it hardly ever works on the first try. Sometimes it takes 2-3 tries before it works. Iv'e tried deleting my prints and re-entering them and although they work better it's just a matter of time before they start to not work as good. So I was wondering if the more times I try to enter my prints does my battery suffer, if it does then I think I might disable the feature. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    I don't know about battery life. I'd assume that the battery consumption is the same with the LED lit up.

    As far as the issue you're having, Rene Ritchie explained why the scanner could actually worsen over time for a fingerprint in the last iMore podcast. When I get a chance to go back to it, I'll update this post with his logic and quote.

    i agree with the others. my guess is that the scan is consuming a fraction-of-a-fraction of the charge being consumed by your screen "on".

    Thanks for the feed back, I feel better that my battery is not draining by constantly scanning my finger.
