slowly deteriorating Touch ID

Complaints about Touch ID not working properly have found their way into the MacNN Forums this week, in the thread titled "slowly deteriorating Touch ID" which was started by Clinically Insane member "subego" after having to wipe stored prints and re-enter them. Today, Mac Elite "jeffk" was having trouble with sorting items in iTunes and turned the forums for some advice.

Junior Member "Lattimer" dedicated a thread to listing all links, comments and reviews of backpacks, bags and sleeves for carrying a Mac notebook. One Fresh-Faced Recruit is looking for a way to retain podcasts on iTunes after they upgrade to iOS7. One Forum Regular was looking for a way to play audio and video from their MacBook Pro on a TV that wasn't Apple TV, which sparked a conversation about different ways to accomplish this.

    I discovered I didn't have to press the home key to get touch id to work. Once I just placed my finger on the home key it started to work every time. Of course I need to keep the button clean but other than that it's working fine for me.

    Good point -- I think a lot of people think you have to press down on it, but as you noted that is not necessary and indeed probably hinders the functioning.
