A few days ago, Apple released an update to its mobile operating system, iOS 7.1, containing a number of bug fixes, improved performance and a number of new features.
New features include improved accuracy and reliability of the Touch ID fingerprint sensor. For the vast majority of iPhone 5s owners, Touch ID has indeed improved and improved since the iOS 7.1 update. On the other hand, the growing number of comments on Apple's support forums indicates that a fairly large number of users of the flagship smartphone, after updating their devices, faced problems with the sensor.
The nature of the problems ranges from a situation where Touch ID does not work at all or only works sporadically, with difficulty comparing fingerprints, to the mysterious disappearance of stored fingerprint data of the owner of the smartphone, and much more. Here's what one of the iPhone 5s owners wrote in a post on the Apple Support Forum:
When another user reminded that the reboot field for Touch ID to work requires entering a passcode, the owner of the “broken” iPhone replied that he did it, but to no avail. Another disgruntled user reported that he could not add another fingerprint to the system memory. “The sensor doesn't even respond to my fingers,” he writes. - "No vibration, nothing." Some users claim that Touch ID only functions when the iPhone is connected to a charger.
What should those who faced similar problems do? First, you need to enable iPhone Unlock in the Touch ID & Password section, then you can try to delete saved fingerprints and overwrite them again. Since different people have encountered different kinds of Touch ID issues after updating the platform, this indicates that these issues were caused by software bugs in the new version of the operating system. Such faults can be easily fixed in the next update. However, as usual, Apple still hasn't acknowledged the problem.

- BioLockdown - Protect iOS 7 apps and settings on iPhone 5s with Touch ID.
