    The Touch ID is so fast now that I can't use the Home button to check my lock screen items. I have to use the sleep/wake button. It also makes it harder to quickly launch the camera because it bypasses the lock screen icon. I have to train myself to start using the sleep/wake button instead.

    I'm not too upset about it, just trying to adjust.

    Yea I noticed this and damn it's way too fast. I did a test on both my 6+ and 6S + and my 6S Plus definitely beat it.

    This is a problem I don't mind.

    Just rotate your upward and use the tip.

    Actually I'd call this a feature. A near flawless finger print reader.

    Just use a finger that you didn't save to Touch ID. Problem solved.

    I see both sides. Those saying its a feature and those saying its too fast. I liked being able to hit the home button on my 6 plus and letting go just to check notifications. And letting it linger on there for an extra second if I wanted to unlock.

    Now the mere act of hitting it opens the phone. I get that the sleep/wake button can be used but in many situations and especially on the bigger plus it's much easier to hit the home button.

    Would rather have a sensitivity setting for Touch ID because I actually didn't have a problem with how it worked on my 6 Plus and didn't really think it was "slow".

    Seriously guys, use a different finger if you want to use the home button to check the phone.

    I upgraded from a 5S and in my opinion Touch ID is finally living up to its potential. Damn near instant. That's a GOOD thing.

    I don't think Apple anticipated this as a problem. I really like it but I can respect those with different wants that are disappointed. This could be easily fixed with some sort of read delay setting. Unsure if Apple will ever care to do that but I am sure jaikbreak will make it happen.

    No one is ever happy. I think it's great but perhaps they could provide an adjustment to the speed for those who think it's too fast. I'd prefer the actual iOS9 bugs get fixed and they improve things, especially since you can use a different finger or the power button to check the screen.

    Do what i do and disable Touch ID for lock screen. Instead, set 'Require Passcode' for one hour!:)

    Umm, use your nail or the lower part of your finger maybe? That'll probably work without triggering Touch ID.

    A nice simple solution.

    I LOVE that it is much faster with the touch id. The lag before actually made me not want to use a passcode

    No such thing as too fast.
    Speed is always good:)

    You can click [the Home button], hold it, and slide the camera up (takes two hands, though assuming most photos are with two hands) :)

    If Apple could apply the time they spent on TouchID and instead use it to develop a denser battery that'd be great.

    Apple doesn't develop batteries, they just buy them.
