    Am I alone in experiencing this? Starting with Beta 2, touch ID broke and "unable to activate touch id on this iphone" messages started to appear. Beta 3 didn't clear the issue. I'm now wondering if wiping the phone and rolling back to 10.3.2 would fix it, or it the beta may have caused a hardware failure.

    No issues here. Don’t believe it’s a common issue with iOS 11.

    I say you should downgrade to latest 10.3.3 beta or 10.3.2 better and try setting your fingerprint.
    If none of this is working then you should return your device and ask the warrranty.

    Keep us updated please!

    I have had no problems with the Touch ID on my iPhone 6s + since going to IOS 11 Public Data.

    Thanks everyone for chiming in. I rolled back to 10.3.2 and the touch ID issue didn't correct itself. Apple just handed me a new replacement phone.
