    Hi my iPhone 6s Touch ID seems to have gotten worse
    When I first got it it was blisteringly fast but since updating to 9.1 it now takes 3 seconds to unlock.
    I've tried .....
    Restoring
    Restoring with no back up and starting fresh
    Adding my print 5 times
    If I reboot it works perfect but later on it'll **** the bed again.

    Anyone have the same prob?
    Anything else I can try before I take it to Apple.

    Thanks.

    I think they slowed it down in 9.1 as people were complaining it was too fast and they didn't have time to read their on screen notifications. However, not by 3 seconds. Why don't you delete a few of the finger prints you have now and redo them and see if that speeds it up.

    Mine definitely slowed down. Still faster than my 6+ though.

    It seems lightning fast to me, but I always had my 6S+ on iOS 9.1, is there a comparison video available?

    Still as fast on 9.1 as it was on 9.0.2 or 9.0.1.

    Same here, no difference with 9.1 either, the only way to view my lock screen without accidentally logging in is to either use the side button or a finger it doesn't recognize.

    They changed something in 9.1.
    I would reach and pick up my 6S+ and just casual contact from a "correct" finger would unlock it. It go so I seld saw the lock screen.
    With 9.1 this happens a lot less. Might be my handling improved too.

    I don't think they decreased it any considering you can press the power button if you really wanted to see your notifications on your lockscreen.

    I agree.
    I just found (prior to 9.1) picking it up or fishing out of my pocket / backpack a fast inadvertent swipe would unlock it unintentionally.

    Looks like it must be faulty as I've tried everything.

    Thanks everyone

    well turns out it is slow for me because my thumb is simply too sweaty. After washing my hands it's super fast. Problem is my hands are more often sweaty than not.

    I do feel that sometimes it really does not respond. I always blame in on my sweaty finger though

    Sounds like you have infamous touch id unlock lag issue. There is a thread about that in here.

    It's instant for me every time.

    Also to those who complain about that, just use another finger, it won't unlock and you can see the time and notifications.
