    Hello everyone! Did anyone notice touch id being a bit slower when unlocking the phone? Most times I press the home button to unlock it and I have to wait 1 to 2 seconds. I am using an iPhone 6S Plus, which used to have a touch id with a really fast response.

    5S here... actually seems a little faster on iOS9.3b2 than before, and the 5S Touch ID is somewhat slower than 6 or 6S...

    I'd say maybe half a second once the screen turns on before it unlocks to the Home Screen.

    Maybe try to re-register your finger? Reboot. OR, if still slow then maybe consider a full DFU restore of the firmware.

    It's definitely slower on my 6S Plus too

    Yeah it's slower.. And for some reason, it occasionally activates Siri instead.

    5S 64gb on 9.3b2

    No issues for me... Touch ID to unlock my iPhone 6S Plus is still lightning fast with 9.3 dev preview 2.

    Still almost too fast. I hate it when I use the 'wrong' finger when just want to see Notifications.

    Exactly. Never consistent. My experience is exactly as you stated.

    "Same, my fingers aren't even reading."

    Same issues here. My touch id seems to be having issues on 9.3 beta 2. It was fine for the first few days. Now it seems to fail quite frequently. Resets no longer fixing the issue. Hoping beta 3 will resolve it.

    Weird you guys are having those issues, given the fact it's a last gen device with Touch Id 2.0
    Maybe restoring the device gets things better?

    Seems the same if not slightly faster on my iPhone 6. One thing I've noticed is that sometimes it does the slide to unlock animation rather than the Touch ID unlock animation which is a little interesting, dun matter to me though.

    I thought so. Apple would never release an update with touch ID acting like that

    I still don't see what all the kvetching is about... TouchID works perfectly for me (iPad Mini 4, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 5S) on 9.3, beta 2.

    As others have stated, on the 6S line with the updated hardware, it's almost too fast...

    Touch ID works fine on my iPad Mini 4 Cellular on current beta. But in the last few days my iPhone 6S has refused to unlock at times using Touch ID.

    I went into the Touch ID settings and it is registering the correct finger when I test it. It reads it every time and shows flashes the correct finger. However, when I then try to use Touch ID to unlock it refuses to unlock. It does register as having received input but it just doesn't want to unlock.

    I've tried hard reset, delete and re-register finger prints and toggling touch id on/off.

    Mines been telling me to enter password and then sometimes won't even register until the 3rd finger attempt
