    Hi Guys,

    Anyone else facing this issue ? Touch ID was working fine till my last update to 9.3.3.

    Now its hit or miss and I need to enter my passcode to unlock.

    Cheers !

    No issues here at all with Touch ID & 9.3.3. Ip6+

    Try cleaning the home button, deleting your saved fingerprints, then register your fingerprints again.

    hi

    i have no idea whats up with your Touch ID, but I had repeated problems with Touch ID becoming less reliable.
    meaning, after awhile the imprints that were registered in Touch ID just would not work so well, as time went on.

    i saw a thread somewhere that said to try the following:

    1 delete current registered fingerprints
    2 reregister them
    3 then a couple of times after you registered them, go back into Touch ID and press lightly is more positions/angles. you will see that imprint be highlighted. doing this seems to add more info about each print then is able to be added when initially registered.

    since i did it that one time, no more problems with Touch ID, even after 6 or 7 months.

    I removed old print and added a new one in : didn't help. Added another print of the same finger and now Touch Id works everytime (just like before).

    I had also removed pass code and added it back in as well.

    Cheers !
