Touch ID Fade

Apple preparing software update to enhance functionality of iPhone 5s Touch ID

While initial reviews of Touch ID generally praised the “single touch” system for being easy to set up and consistently accurate, a number of users have reported what is being called “AuthenTec Fade,” or intermittent recognition failures that begin to occur months after first configuring one’s prints.

I first posted on Touch ID here: Out of Touch ID, and here: Touch ID. I thought I fixed the problem with my last post but in fact, Touch ID on my iPhone 5S has faded to not working consistently.

Needless to say, I’m looking forward to this update and I’m glad Apple has finally acknowledged this problem.
