Touch ID Stops Working in App Store For Many Users Following Update to iOS 8.3

Posted by · 12896 views · Translate
Touch ID has stopped working in the App Store for many users following their update to iOS 8.3. The problem is being reported on Apple's discussion forums, reddit, and MacRumors forums.

Here's what users are reporting:

Since updating to 8.3 I'm having problems with touch id and the app store. Before the update when i purchased paid and free apps it asked for my touchid. since i updated and I've changed no settings its asking for my password. Any ideas how to get it back to touchid. tried toggling the setting , re doing my fingerprints reset settings etc

The issue reportedly affects the iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPad Air 2 but doesn't seem to apply to every user. It's likely that Apple will address this in a future update. The issue isn't critical and users can still download apps by entering their password manually.

Same here.. So far so good.. Hope the whole connection thing will be alright..? Last update actually fcked up the iMessage part and some bad bug connections too.. I really do hope this the last update before going iOS 9.

I got the same problem. I'm probably repeating the solution people have been saying but I just went into Settings -> Touch ID & Passcode -> turned off and on iTunes and App Store... Fixed!
