iOS 9.1 Comes With Big Problems to the Touch ID Feature

2

The Apple fans are furious because of the latest iOS 9.1 version, which was launched on October 21, in addition to the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements, this update brought its own issues related to the battery drain and connectivity, but there is another glitch that has affected the Touch ID feature. Unfortunately, a downgrade to the previous iOS 9.0.2 version isn’t possible for now, so the users will need to wait until Apple will release iOS 9.1.1.

Apple’s latest patch is not a success, because many users complained about the problems they had during and after the installation of the iOS 9.1. It seems that this update affected the battery life on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 6S, and there are other issues with Search, Messages, contacts and certain applications, when connecting to a cellular service.

However, there is even a bigger problem with the Touch ID feature, which is not so reliable anymore on devices such as iPhone 5, 5S, 6, 6 Plus and iPad Air 2, because it responds slower than before, while other users said that the scanner doesn’t even accept a fingerprint.

A Reddit user called DaedraCross has wrote on the social networking website that the Touch ID is functioning only 15 percent of the time and it’s completely unlocked only 7 seconds later after the fingerprint is recognized. The only solution to this problem would be the downgrade to iOS 9.0.2, but an Apple forum user called ChrisJ4203 said that the process is nit possible, because it’s not supported by Apple.

iOS 9.0.1 came also with a bunch of bugs and one of them was causing an iOS 9 device to get stuck on Slide to Upgrade, while iOS 9.0.2 came with touchscreen failures, problems with the Game Center and the applications were freezing when installing/updating, but this issue has been solved in iOS 9.1.
