    Touch ID on the iPhone 6s is extremely fast, right?

    Well, it's so fast that it's unlocking my phone for a split second (meaning it sends you to the SpringBoard) and then locking it again, prompting you AGAIN to scan your finger. Second time you scan it unlocks your phone appropriately.

    It's a bizarre issue that has only been occurring on iOS 9.3 PB3 on an iPhone 6s as far as I can recall.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Or do I have to reset all settings and see if it fixes it?

    It's a known issue in beta 3. Should be fixed in beta 4.

    I don't have the issue on 5s, 6 and 6 plus, maybe it's 6s-specific?

    Yeah, because Touch ID is stupidly fast on the 6s.

    I didn't encounter this issue on my 5s with the iOS 9.3 PBs.

    I don't use touch id. I prefer passwords. There are also some strange moments.
    Sometimes there is no page for entering the password. Sometimes the page appear but no touch on keyboard will recognized.
    I believe the whole lock and unlock mode has to be reviewed by Apple. For both one, Touch ID and Password using.

    Touch ID is so fast on the 6s that even inputting a four-digit passcode is a waste of time.

    I don't believe in security of a fingerprint. I use a 10-digit-alphanumeric-passcode because it's safer. In case of violence everybody can push your finger on the sensor.
