    I'm curious, how does Touch ID work when you have multiple notification on your lock screen?

    Do you touch the sensor to unlock the phone and then swipe the notification you want to jump to? Or do you swipe and then scan?

    Swipe the specific notification you want to view to the right (this will bring you to enter the passcode) now is the time you use Touch ID.

    You are welcome.

    TouchID replaces the passcode, so I assume you'd swipe then scan.

    You swipe the notification, and then on the passcode screen, you put your finger on the sensor, and it fills in the passcode.

    Read somewhere that if a new notification (e.g text message) comes in, placing your finger on the home button will unlock it take you to the messages app?

    Nope, you have to swipe the notification first then use touch ID and it will unlock it to the messages app.

    Only if it's a brand new notification. Scan replaces passcode entry. Everything else is the same. Swipe the lock screen item you want to see. Scan at passcode screen.
