Ok so I took this thing out of the box and setup my fingerprint. I than restored my new phone from my iTunes backup and updated to the new software. I deleted my old fingerprint and tried to add a new one and now it doesn't scan any more. I tried resetting the phone and still nothing. Any ideas if this is just a software issue or did my sensor die already... So frustrating...
Were you able to successfully add the new print? If so, does it say "Try Again" when you try to use the print?
Which one of these best describes your technique for unlocking the device with Touch ID?
Tap Home Button + Tap & Hold Home button Tap Home Button + Touch & Rest on Home Button
*Hint; Only one of those is the correct way.
I was able to when I did the initial setup. I updated to ios 7.0.1 and it doesn't work at all any more. It says to tap and nothing registers, just the same white screen.
I believe this issue is due to 7.0.1. I never got to setup my fingerprint scanner at all. It now just goes immediately to the Failed Screen. Does Apple even QA their releases?
