    Anyone else noticed this? The slightest bit of moisture would make touch ID useless on the 5s, but on the 6 I don't even remember touch ID exists anymore! ;)

    Was there any mention in the leaks that they improved the sensor? Thought I might have read something about that.

    Yes I believe so. It's not been officially mentioned though. I suppose they don't want to advertise that the 5s Touch ID is inferior.

    Since I don't handle my 5s with wet hands I think I'll be ok...

    Agreed with OP. The iPhone 6 recognizes my fingerprints both faster and more accurate than my 5s, even working when my fingers are moist.
