Apple reportedly readying fix for iPhone 5S TouchID bug


apple-iphone-5s-touch-idApple is reportedly working on a software update that will fix one of the bugs on the iPhone 5S that has been particularly infuriating for users. According to a report from AppleInsider that cites a single unnamed source, an upcoming update to Apple s iOS software will resolve an issue that causes the accuracy of Apple s Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the iPhone 5S to degrade over time.

The issue was brought to light in a report late last year, and since then we have seen an increasing number of reports that make similar claims. When affected users first configure Touch ID, it works well for a period of time. Then, however, the scanner begins to fail when reading users prints, and the failures become more frequent over time.
