Second-generation TouchID is considerably faster
During the Keynote presentation of the iPhone 6s earlier this month, Apple announced that the new devices would include a second-generation TouchID that was twice as fast as its predecessor. Users are already receiving the first orders, so we can start to really compare the speed difference between devices that include the first generation TouchID and the second generation. Thanks to iFixYouri and its comparison we can see how fast is the new TouchIDIn the video we can see an iPhone 5s, an iPhone 6 and an iPhone 6s being unlocked through TouchID.
As Apple promised, the second-generation fingerprint sensor seems significantly faster than previous models, although the increased capabilities of the rest of the hardware may also have something to do with it, but the video test is quite reliable and the changes are notable. Second Gen TouchID Looks Incredibly Faster, especially considering that the first generation TouchID was already quite fast. It seems that Apple gives what it promises in terms of TouchID, although it seems somewhat unnecessary to improve this hardware that was already very effective, but it never hurts to add innovations.
The iPhone 6s unlocks almost instantly, which is leading some users to complain that they can no longer press the home button to take a look at the lock screen and notifications, as unlock the phone too quickly. However we remember that the home button is not intended for that function and that unnecessary continued use could diminish its qualities over time, the power / standby button is intended for this purpose. In short, the new TouchID meets all the expectations created, so, just enjoy it.
