    simply by simply taking a snapshot of your lock screen (press Home + Wake at the same time) and you just circumvent the pin/fingerprint lock.

    Was that document or is this a new tiny bug?

    Are you using a finger to press the home button that is registered with Touch ID? That will unlock your device.

    I guess the fingerprint sensor is working as intended then!

    This is like the third thread I've seen about "bypassing" the lock screen on the 5s, when in reality, whatever you're doing to "bypass" it involves touching the TouchID sensor with your finger and unlocking the phone.

    Can someone make a sticky explaining this so we'll stop seeing threads like this?
