    So my Touch ID worked flawless from launch until this past Thursday.

    Since Thursday evening it seems to only work 75% of the time. Phone has never been dropped, I have reset all the finger prints and it's consistent across all.

    Any ideas?

    I've noticed Touch ID is slow now. In my family we have 4 6S on 9.0.2 and the touch ID unlocks at the exact speed as my old 5S.

    I guess the update made it slower.

    Few things to keep in mind. The finger print scanner can get dirty. After you use it for a week or so it will build up a film from the oils on your finger. If your the only one using the phone it actually helps it for a little bit as the print is still kind of there. But after a week or more you may need to wipe it down.

    It didn't make it slower on my 6 Plus. I actually noticed that Touch ID was a lot faster after updating to 9.0.2.

    TouchID is still blazing fast for me. I'm running the 9.1 developer betas though.

    Ensure that there are NO scratches on the Touch Id sapphire covering.

    When it works it's almost instant way faster then the 5S.

    No scratches and I keep it clean.

    I only used the RG 6S Plus that I returned for one day. That one was still on iOS 9 and from what I recall was very fast to unlock first time I put my finger on it. Good to know that it works well with 9.1 too.

    Same here after update on my 6s. Don't know if it makes any difference, but I use 3 different prints of the same thumb.

    Haven't noticed any issues so far, is scarily fast that I often try to see if I can push the button with a registered finger but without unlocking the phone

    Mine is ridiculously fast, to the point where I get annoyed at my Air 2 for taking such a long time to unlock. It's a bit silly how quickly you get used to it.
