    I just unpacked my new iPhone 5s and have been using it for a day but the ring light in the home screen button hasn't lit up yet. Is there a particular setting to make this happen?

    Help please :(

    If it was working, you'd probably just be using a knock off.

    LOL OMG my iPhone 5S is a fake! My home button doesn't light up!

    Wait.. Apple never said the home button is supposed to light up.

    My Space Gray 5s' Touch ID ring emits black light when phone is on.

    As much of a joke as this is, I was actually disappointed that Apple didn't incorporate a light into the TouchID. One of the features I like about Android devices is the LED notification light. I rather have my iPhone keep the screen off, buzz, and use a small ring of light, than turn on the screen for a couple seconds each time something comes in.

    I feel the home button / TouchID would have been a great place to add that.
