    Hmm. Try a restore.

    And no there is no way to go back to 8.2

    Doesn't work in App Store? If so, try going to settings>Touch ID and disable/reenable touch for whatever you were using it for (ie; app/music store).

    People in this thread need to stop saying you can't downgrade to 8.2 when they don't know about Apple's firmware signing status. 8.2 is still being signed so you can restore to it.

    Go here: https://ipsw.me/

    Select your model and then download iOS 8.2 ipsw. Hook your phone up to iTunes, put it DFU mode, and shift + click on 'Restore...' to select that ipsw. It should then restore to 8.2.

    Note that it will delete all your data, and if you have an 8.3 backup you can't restore that. It needs to be a backup created with 8.2 or below.

    Although it's might be possible to downgrade the 8.3 experience described is quite unusual and doesn't really seem like a 8.3 issue. I would say restoring as new with 8.3 might be worth trying first in case there was just some install issue originally that caused unusual issues.

    Download the 8.2 firmware and restore using iTunes QUICKLY. You barely have any time. Apple will stop signing 8.2 any moment now.

    I agree with this opinion. It seems likely there's something else going on that isn't directly related to 8.3.

    Yeah try to reset it if you can, because I have found 8.3 to be a smoother and more bug free experience than 8.2 was

    iOS has always had a window where Apple still signs the previous version. It's usually no more than a few weeks on major interval updates.

    ----------

    Resetting alone might not be enough. If it still doesn't work, then try restoring the phone as a new device, and verify Touch ID functionality. If it works, then restore your data and apps from a backup.

    As mentioned, downgrading won't help if your backup was done with iOS 8.3. On iTunes, I usually maintain at least a couple of older backups done using previous versions of iOS.

    Thank you for this!!! I'm trying this right now as I want to be able to continue using ifunbox to move around game save files. This could potentially make my day if it works!! :)

    Edit: Yep it did work! :D

    Video Camera Lock up on IOS 8.3 - iPhone 6+ 128gb

    My iPhone's video camera locks up after I shoot a video. The video will not post to the pictures and I can not select the image to view or switch camera back to still operation. My fingerprint scanner works great. Sketchy about downgrading to 8.2. I will wait it out and see maybe take to Apple Store.

    I forgot my apple id password, now I wont be able to download any app. What I should do? Because I restored my device and says that I should have the best password but I forgot.

    Other problem, I went to apple web site , and said that I will receive a email to change my password. But since two days I didnt receive any email from apple

    Check your spam box. Reinitiate the request on the apple website to reset your password. The email usually comes within minutes. Call up apple, see if you can verify the email address on file for the password reset.
