    I've had an iphone 6 since early December. In early February I got a replacement iPhone due to a faulty sleep button.

    In all the time I had the first iphone 6, touch id worked flawlessly. But with this phone it fails very very often. I'm not sure what is wrong. I made sure hte sensor was very clean using glass wipes but still fails often.

    Do you guys have any tricks or issues similar to mine?

    Mine fails every once in a while if my hands are a little wet or sweaty, but otherwise, the fail rate is very low. Have you tried erasing all your recorded fingerprints on the phone and doing them over again?

    I have. However why did my previous phone had no issues with my fingers?
    I can assure you my "sweating" patterns haven't changed :D

    Well maybe you do have faulty hardware then. Or it could be a software glitch. Who knows?

    I have the exact same problem. The first phone I had, the Touch ID was great. I had it replaced for a screen problem, the new one has a terrible touch ID sensor. I'm thinking about calling apple.
    Just don't reall want another replacement.
