    My touch ID doesn't seem very accurate. Maybe 6 out of 10 times it will work. But aside from that... it is weird... I can wipe the button with a micorfiber cloth to a mirror finish, but touch it once and a weird smudge appears... and it is the same smudge... the same shape always. It will seemingly disappear with a wipe with cloth... but always come back with a touch with any finger. Could this be part of the reading issue? Also having random crashes to the Apple logo and Random app crashes.

    Genius bar? Yay? Nay?

    I have been having the same issues. I made a post in this thread about the Touch ID issues I have been having...

    TouchID had been working great for me since I got the iPhone 5s on Sept 25th. But I think it started a few weeks ago where Touch ID would stop working altogether and not even attempt to try and read my fingerprint (there was no "try again" message either).

    Try re-registering your fingerprint.

    I'm on a much higher success rate, but still fails from time to time.
    Try saving multiple copies of the same fingerprint and see how it works out.

    Ran great for 2 weeks the suddenly barely works, tried restoring phone setting up as new, takes many attempts to get finger registered now, says to use different finger during registration, and when I manage to get a finger registered it does not work. Disabled touchid. Don't see what could changed since it was working great. Maybe my finger are mutating :)

    Yesterday, I deleted all my registered prints and just re-registered my right thumb to see of that makes a difference. So far so good.
