anyone have TouchID working on High Sierra?

The update kept my fingerprints, but the sensor wouldn’t read anything. I tried re-adding them, but there is an error and the scanning process won’t begin. Seems something is up with getting the sensor to work at all.

Apple Watch also can’t connect, but it seems I’m not alone with that issue. Anyone find a solution?

Maybe just a bug?

Haha, I already figured that. I'm trying to assess if it's a widespread DP 2 bug or something (somewhat) specific to my install. Nobody else has posted about the TouchID issue.


EDIT: re-installing DP2 didn't do it, but DP2.1 solved the TouchID issue. Still no luck on Auto-Unlock

I'm having the same exact issues—but with Sierra. Unsure that it's related to which version of OSX you have. Wth.

This is just one of the issues I've had with this new Macbook Pro. And Apple has been less than helpful.

I can't get auto-unlock to work either.
