    Anyone feel like touch id was upgraded? I'm getting very few failed attempts when unlocking than on my 5s.

    Absolutely- enough so that I actually use it on my 6+ and never did on my 5s.

    The 5s very frequently failed to recognize my prints.

    I was thinking the same thing. On my 5S it would fail quite a lot for unknown reasons (hands dry, not dirty, etc). On my 6 it hasn't realy failed at all.

    Yea quite often if my finger was dirty or I was sweating I would fail on my 5s. I rarely see any failed attempts on my 6

    I honestly wanted to give up on Touch ID on my 5S for a long time but I hung in there with it, and i'm glad I did because I am loving it on the 6 now. If I had given up on the 5S I probably would have just wrote it off on the 6 and not even tried.

    I might give it another shot. It did not work, at times, on my 5S. Got to be a pain and turned it off.

    Seems to work better for me, and feels smoother (might just be because it's a new phone though).

    ios 8 made my 5s touchid nearly perfect now. so it could just be software related.

    I didn't have the 5s so I can't compare but I've been beyond impressed with how quick and accurate my wife's 6 is at TouchID.
