    1. Correction:"Bc iOS9 PUBLIC BETA has made it 50% slower."
    2. My Touch ID hasn't seemed any slower.
    3. ...brah.

    Using the GM, which was released yesterday, Touch ID is just as fast on my 6 as it was on 8.4.1.

    I guess Apple isn't capitalist in my neck of the woods.

    It seemed a tad slower to me all night while at work. Just got home and decided to test it against my wife's iPhone that is still on 8.4.1

    Using the iOS 9 that was released to the public yesterday, the touch ID is about half second slower than it is using 8.4.1

    I think that's apples to oranges (too many variables).
    1. Restart both phones
    2. Delete all fingerprints
    3. Fill up all fingerprint slots identically
    4. Retest
    Then we have an apples-to-apples comparison (no pun intended).

    If iOS 9 made it 50% slower and it's 50% faster on the new hardware, then it'd still only be 75% of the original speed :eek:

    Fractions brah

    no its definitely slower, how about I just install iOS 9 on both phones and test it that way. then it would be apples to apples.

    but do they mean 50% faster than the original speed or the current speed :p

    With that said, I am seeing no different in 8.4.1 and 9.0 in relation to touchID speed. The phone overall does feel slightly, and I mean slightly, more sluggish (iPhone 6).

    however , safari on ios 9 with a content blocker installed is significantly faster...I'll take the trade off.

    I picked up Crystal yesterday while it was free. Safari now feels like it did back when my old iPhone 5s was running 7.1.2 , faster than 8 or 9(without ad blocker)

    Holy crap, I just deleted and re-added my fingerprints. Something I've had to do ever three or four weeks because my iPhone just doesn't like to be touched apparently and it was hugely faster.

    The setup process didn't fail once, even with my left forefinger which has a couple of scars on it and would fail four or five times before it picked it up.

    They must've done something with the scanning in iOS 9 because TouchID has worked maybe 60% of the time in iOS 8 but it has yet to miss a beat since re-adding in iOS 9.

    just a tad slower, you have a 6 running 8.4.1 right next to a 6 running 9.0 to compare it to? I'd take a video but only got 2 phones.
