    5 ways to fix iPhone 6 touch ID not working

    Solution No.1: Clean the home button

    If touch ID isn’t working on iPhone 6, the first thing you should do is clean the home button. Also, your fingers always need to be clean and dry when using touch ID. You need to keep your device clean, because many times, dust and dirt go right under the home button, where the sensors are. Every once in a while, wipe your device with the clean and dry cloth.

    Solution No.2: Leave your finger on the sensor longer

    Some users have reported that touch ID problem on iPhone 6, can be solved when you leave the finger on the sensor longer than usual, for about 15 to 30 seconds. This does not mean you’ll have to do that every time when you want to unlock your phone. You should do it once, and the issue will be gone.

    Solution No.3: Delete a fingerprint and add it again

    To delete a fingerprint on iPhone 6:

    • Navigate to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode
    • Type the passcode when prompted
    • Find the fingerprint you want to remove, and tap on it
    • Click on Delete Fingerprint
    To add a fingerprint on iPhone 6:

    • Navigate to Settings > Touch ID & Passcode
    • Click on Fingerprints
    • Tap on Add a fingerprint
    Solution No.4: Restart your iPhone

    Press and hold the sleep/wake button and drag the slider to turn the phone off. To turn it back on, press and hold the sleep/wake button again. Hopefully, touch ID issues on iPhone 6 will be gone.

    Solution No.5: Update iOS

    If there is a new version of iOS you should download and install it. This is often essential, because every new version solves a wide range of bugs you might have on your device, and it may fix the problem with touch ID. You can update iOS wirelessly, but before you start, back up your iPhone to iCloud. To update iOS:

    • Connect your iPhone to a power source, and to a Wi-Fi network
    • Go to Settings > General > Software Update
