    Hello, I was wondering if there has been anyone else that has been having some issues with their touch id. recently my touch id has been acting a bit funny and doesnt wan to read any of my prints. When I try and delete all my prints and re scan them it keeps telling me" Cant read this fingerprint at this moment". I somewhat have sweaty and clammy hands usually but shouldnt be a huge problem. Is anyone experiencing the same thing? Thanks

    I just got a 5s and before updating to 7.1 Touch ID worked fine, after the update it doesn't work at all.

    I experience this after I get done working out or after I take a shower and my hands are sweaty or have moisture on them. The Touch ID doesn't work, but I usually just dry my hands on my sweatshirt or towel and it will read it after that. I've quite frankly seen a decent improvement in Touch ID with iOS 7.1

    Your finger needs to be pretty clean and dry for it to work, at least thats what i have found.
