    We were super amazed at the speed of the iPhone 6S Plus's fingerprint read, sometimes so fast we would miss our notifications. It isn't the speed to home screen we were excited about but the speed and accuracy at which it reads your actual fingerprint!

    I mean obviously it is all trivial in the grand scheme of the universe, but in terms of everyday use it ROCKS!

    Use an unregistered finger when you have notifications.

    Yeah with my 6 I have to wait a little bit for it to unlock. Can't wait for this!

    Damn that thing is fast! I have a 5 so I don't even have Touch ID. Can't wait to get my 6S Monday!

    Yeah I was actually thinking it was not locking at first but then I realized it was just registering my finger extremely quickly.

    Today after washing my hands I hit my 6S and it opened faster than my 5S ever did. I then tried my 5S and it took 3 tries and about 10 seconds. With dry fingers it appears to be just as fast as if the security lock was off.
