My iPhone 7 has been working fine until the last few days the fingerprint stopped working. I deleted the fingerprint and re-added and that seemed to help for a few days, but not it stopped again.

Anyone have this problem?

I too am having this problem with my SE. Won't recognize my fingerprints to unlock. Right now it will often still recognize one of the three prints I saved after a few tries.

My wife had the same problem with her SE. I did a DFU reinstall, but it didn't help. Took it to the Apple Store and they ended up changing the screen.
