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.

We all have that problem. Just an added security feature.

Or something to be fixed in 7.0.3. :D
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?

It also does it on a normal restart.

Also, I'm not complaining, it's a simple enough thing to enter my passcode, I just don't understand why they did it.

If they want a security feature to discourage people from stealing the iPhone...put some extra batteries in it, and make all metal parts a transmitter for electric shock every time the home or power button is pressed and an option to activate the feature in "find my iPhone". Nothing deadly...just VERY painful. Or one of those dye packs like the banks have, tear gas and marking dye, that's the ticket.

It also requires it after a simple reboot and 48 hours of non-use. The passcode is more secure.

I'm still voting for dye packs, tear gas and electric shock. Make people scared to touch an iPhone that isn't theirs and you don't even need a passcode. :D

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.

How exactly is anyone supposed to get to their notes app to get the unlock code if you can't unlock to get in to begin with? :D
The Notes app on their Mac. It syncs it through iCloud. :whistle:
