    I know it sounds crazy, but its so fast I keep dismissing the notifications on my lock screen. I have to remember to use the tip of my thumb so it cant register. Either that or use the power button but who wants to do that? I would actually prefer Apple build in a little of a delay to help out the situation.

    It is super fast but I just use a different finger so it doesn't unlock.

    I actually erased my right thumb print in settings because of this...which makes it very easy to use it now, and I just scan my left thumb print our one of my index fingers to access the phone. It does register the print super fast though, which I actually think is pretty awesome.

    It is very fast so I left my R Index finger out of TouchID so I use that finger (or the sleep/wake button) if I want to see the lock screen

    Why not keep the right finger index and pulling down the nf screen once unlocked ? All notifications are still there.

    or.... use the sleep awake button as it was intended to do. Took me the better part of a day, but I am already re-trained to do that.

    I just use the lock button to wake the screen. I personally enjoy TouchID being faster.

    You just have to adjust your habits.

    The use case scenario is if you want to quickly glance at the lock screen for notifications or time. Of course you can get all of this info if you unlock the iPhone...

    I would rather it be too fast than... Anything else on the market right now. Even the note 5 was hit or miss with the scanner. So I can live with the quickness. Would be nice for a delay setting for some people though. Would make sense.

    Delete that fingerprint and then use a finger for which your fingerprint is not stored to access the notifications.

    I use my big toe to wake the phone up and then I have Touch ID registered to left earlobe. Works great.

    It also can interfere with the camera shortcut on the home screen.

    So thats pretty much it. Unless apple gives the option for a delay, I will be using the power button to wake the screen, then my thumb to unlock it.

    I'm getting used the speedy touchID recognition - makes it feel like touchID isn't even there it's so fast. The old was too slow sometimes.

    You can always use a non touch ID finger to open to the lock screen. Then use touch ID from there.

    There are a few work arounds, I agree. Its not the end of the world to be sure. Just add's a level of annoyance to what should be a pretty straight forward process. IMHO of course.

    I personally love that it is so fast. I use to have aa 90% accuracy rate prior to getting my 6S Plus. Now it always picks up my finder. If I am just checking notifications, I simply tap the home button with my finger and do not place my finger on it.

    You don't like to see lock screen notifications?

    If you're not used to that, it's an inconvenience. But like somebody already said, if you use the tip of your finger, it won't activate Touch ID.

    It is too fast. Sometimes I just want to check for a notification and it opens my phone. Lol! I like how fast it is though but it could use adjusting. I wish we had the option to slow down or speed up to our liking. Like with 3D Touch we can change the sensitivity.

    You guys know that you hit the power button on the right side of the phone? just saying.
    Who would want to do that? Lol

    Sounds easy but when you have a 6s plus it's a longer reach. Either way I'm slowly adapting to use it to wake the screen.
