    So certain times my iPhone 5s home button when the phone is locked, if I hit it to wake the phone, it does not wake the phone, and I have to hit the home button multiple times. It does not happen all the time, I am just wondering if anyone else is having issues or maybe it is just mine?

    I've had this happen a few times. Try a reboot. Hold the home and power button together until the phone turns off

    Ok so it isn't simply a hardware issue on my iPhone. Thanks. I never had that happen with my 5 so was surprised to see it happen with my 5S.

    It's happened to me a few times but nothing too alarming. I think its an OS issue also.

    I've had this issue on all my iOS devices, 3rd & 5th gen iPod touch and iPhone 4S & 5S on iOS 3.1.2 - 7.1 beta 5. I don't think it will ever be fixed.

    I can tell you one thing for sure. The times it has happened is while the phone was plugged into the charger. Both on the lighting cable and a Mophie case.

    I have had this issue couple of times before. Sometimes the touch ID does not recognize your finger. So you have to key in the pass code. And after that the touch ID works again. Doesn't necessary to reboot. It's a random problem and I think it's an iOS issue.

    I found that if I hit the home button really fast after waking the phone it allows me to completely skip the pin lock and go straight to the home screen. I hope they fix this soon cause it's major security issue.

    It's 100% repeatable without any real effort, too.

    Are you using the finger registered with touch ID?

    Are you using the finger that you have registered with the scanner is what I'm asking. If it is, the scanner works that fast. Try it with a finger that isn't registered. It won't bypass the pass code lock. If it does, then you have a security issue. Otherwise, it's working by design.

    I know how fast the scanner works. And it happens with any finger. If I double tap the home button when the screen off it bypasses the pin lock and goes straight to the home screen.

    It happens when a third party double press it as well.

    Take the phone to a Genius Bar. That's a pretty unique problem if it's really happening.

    And double tapping the home button with the screen off wouldn't give you a pass code screen anyway. Very unique problem you're having.

    Cannot get it to happen. Touch id enabled and double tapping with a non registered finger gets a: "try again"

    Hi guys after the 7.1.2 update my iphone sometimes (3 times so far) becomes unresponsive for like 5-10 seconds. I can hit the power button or the home button few times and it will not turn on. After 5 seconds of clicking the buttons it will wake up and be normal. Is it software issue or the hardware one?
