    My touch ID isn't working to open my iPhone. It does work to open apps. Doesn't make sense. Why would this be?

    Try cleaning the home button, if that does not work do a hard reset (hold power and volume down at the same time), if that doesn't work try reinstalling your current iOS version. If that fails go to apple.

    A hard reset should fix the problem.
    Sometimes the Touch ID sensor won't recognise our fingerprint if our fingers are sweaty/wet/oily.

    Cos iPhones rubbish lol, might be in the settings, separate settings for every action type of thing, just go through your settings for all security items and see if it has to be selected on an individual basis.

    And if that fails, get a different phone altogether lol.
