    Do you feel the current from touchid ring even when passcode lock and touchid are switched off? And how much is the current it uses when you are using it and does affect the battery life?

    Feel the current? Do you have sixth sense or something?

    There is no current, any more than there is a current from the touchscreen.

    Probably a short in the touch ID. Remember even with the settings off, the touch ID is still powered. The settings just tells the software to bypass reading touch ID inputs. You might want to take it to Apple for an inspection.

    If you feel any current from the ring, something is wrong. GO to Apple.

    This. The only feeling I get from mine was when browsing in safari on data, nothing major but noticeable.

    Well, it certainly isn't powered by magic. Now how much of an affect, I have no idea.

    You can easily verify yourself by testing with it on and then off.

    I feel it too

    I have had 2 different iPhone 5s and can feel a tingling sensation in my thumb as it comes into contact with the conductive ring around the Touch ID, you're not alone! :)

    I don't think it's normal to feel an electric current when using any handheld electronic device.

    Well, maybe a taser. :p
