iOS 9.1 bungles Touch ID for some, takes it away for others
And you thought that taco emoji was soooo worth it, right? It seems that regardless of whether it’s a point-update or a dot-update, Apple has had some pretty ugly software launches lately. iOS 8.0.1 is probably the best example of this. It makes some of the iOS 9 disappointments look pretty. But it happens sometimes and is inevitable like death and taxes.
This time around for iOS 9.1, it seems that some users have taken to the support forums for some issues with Touch ID (linked content has not been associated with these bugs). Some claim that Touch ID is running slow, with recognition lag lasting through when a user attempts to input the passcode. Others say that their iPhone is just forgetting their fingerprints after a while.
Owners of the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6s have all reported a mix of the two issues above.
Unfortunately, Apple closed the signing window for iOS 9.0.2, so users have no road back to stability, just a long wait for the next update.
