Note: For best results, swipe the entire pad of your finger, from base to tip, across the home key to register your fingerprint properly. Keep your finger flat against the home key and swipe at a moderate speed. The fingerprint sensor is sensitive to moisture, so make sure both the screen and your fingertip are dry.
