Another tip for fingerprint is to use the same orientation and position of the finger that you normally use to unlock. Like i set one when I hold it in my hand, and the other when I use the phone on my desk.

Re: iPhone 6

No problems with touch id here. I have a 6S Plus though.

I have 3 fingers registered. My two thumbs and my right index finger.

Re: iPhone 6

So I have the brightness set to max. Auto-brightness off. All of a sudden when I use my phone for a bit, the phone dims and is much less bright than max and harder to see. Is there some setting I'm missing? Anything I can do to keep full brightness? Thanks.

Re: iPhone 6

and then there is touch disease, so yes the iphone 6 is inherently defective

http://www.phonearena.com/news/More-...isease_id86366

I recently gave up on iphones completely (forced my kids to get rid of them) due to two of them having this touch disease problem and apple acting ignorant about it

but I guess if someone else's iphone works fine, this lawsuit is bullshit

This page suggests that the "auto lock" feature may cause the phone to dim.

Not defending them but...the deny tactic is used by many companies... I have had other smartphones with known problems and they claim ignorance.

Re: iPhone 6

I don't have autolock set, so that's not what's causing the issue.

Re: iPhone 6

My theory is it's from overheating. Mine has been doing it pretty much since I got it (iPhone 6s+). And it mostly happens when I have it in the cradle stuck to the windshield when driving with Waze on.
Even after coming inside, or putting it in the shade for awhile, it takes a little while to come back to full brightness.
I know it's not the Waze app, because I turned the Auto brightness off.
Occasionally it happens outside in the Summer.

Re: iPhone 6

Nope. Mine still does it, but infrequently. Maybe they're in cahoots with the guys who built your TV.
