So I just did a hard restart on my 5s and once it restarted I had to enter my passcode to open the phone. It would not accept my fingerprint after a reset.
I don't know, instead of "Try again" it says "Enter Passcode after restart". With the message there, it seems intentional, I just don't see the point. I don't see where it is a security feature, what are the chances someone steals your phone and restarts it?Or something to be fixed in 7.0.3.
With all the hoopla about spoofing fingerprints (although you'd have to be a CSI tech to do it) and the obligatory blog posts about "Oh,noes, teh Apple fingerprint security is teh cracked!1!" I'd expect nothing less than to require the code instead.It also requires it after a simple reboot and 48 hours of non-use. The passcode is more secure.
