Does this also mean the phone will erase after 10 failed TouchID attempts or just passcode attempts?
Touch ID counts as a passcode attempt...so I think so, yes.
I don't think this is the case... it will only let you attempt to unlock the phone with TouchID a couple of times and if you keep failing then it requires you to unlock with a passcode. Once it gets in that state then you can't use TouchID again until you unlock with a passcode. I would think at that point 10 failed passcodes would wipe it.
I don't have a 5S yet, so I'll play dumb about what's actually involved in using the Touch ID...
Do you press the home button, THEN your finger registers on the sensor?
Or is there a more complicated process?
I'm just thinking it would be a pretty easy practical joke for someone to just hit the home button 10 times (or whatever) to lock/wipe your phone!
But I'll let those who actually own a 5S to explain away this silliness.
EDIT: just saw BrettDS's answer, which seems to explain away the silliness.
Not true. After 3 failed attempts it goes to the passcode screen at which point you can pass the touch id scan and still unlock.
