    The title pretty much says it all. The Touch ID finger scanner does not work when charging since 7.1 upgrade. I never noticed this before.

    Apparently, the iPhone 5s Touch ID not working while connected to a power source isn't a new issue specific to iOS 7.1. This Apple discussion thread offers some curious advice.

    I'd be curious to know if it works when following this suggestion.

    It's plugged directly into a walk outlet using a Apple original cable.

    Ok. This is weird. I just plugged it into an Apple charger with an Apple cable and it worked. I was using a griffin charger with Apple cable. I guess Apple and griffin sometimes don't like to share a sand box.

    Mine works when connected to a car charger. It's a micro-USB charger with the little Lightening Port adapter. The only time it doesn't work is after a restart. Then you have to manually (ugh!) type in the unlock code. So 2012! :)

    That is not meaning it doesn't work or malfunction. U have to key in the code is actually one of its security feature each time the phone restart. It was design as that way.

    Funny, I haven't noticed any difference in performance on or off charge. I often check my phone, on charge, while laying sleeplessly in bed in the middle of the night.
    YMMV
