Ditto. My hands were dry one evening (like lacking natural moisture) and I couldn’t unlock my iPhone. My hands were wet one afternoon from rainy weather, and I couldn’t unlock my iPhone. I found that if you add your thumbs when they are dry, you get a better success rate, but that is lame.

I really love Touch ID, but when it doesn’t work it is maddening. Like Murray, that’s about 20% of the time for me. But of that 20% that it doesn’t work, it means spending a long time trying to get into my iPhone.

Again, *maddening*.

Don’t even get me started on that “renew Touch ID purchases” dialog — I want to punch whomever made that decision in the face.
