    Never had any issues with touch ID, you just need to scan all of the angles and thats it. And clean the scanner from time to time.

    • Agreed 🙂

        Perhaps you need to start washing your hands

      • Matt Taylor

        I have OCD and I guarantee you I wash my hands a hell of a lot more than you mate! What a childish fan boy typed remark! Apple release phones that drop signal when you touch them and people are told they must be holding the phone wrong and to buy a case, and now we get touch ID’s that fail after a month and we’re told we must be doing it wrong or to “wash our hands” more hahaha…

      • Dany Quirion

        Well too bad for you because i didnt have any problems 🙂

  • Jonathan Talbot

    oh yeah 😉

  • Taylor Vandenberg

    Some apps look better with the IOS 7 design but other apps looked better with all of the little details it had with it’s design in IOS 6. I hate most apps until they update their icon but don’t do some IOS 7 overkill. Hopefully we will get used to it and it will stop grinding our ears. One day.

    Do you talk about “isios7jailbrokenyet”? If not, I think there should be a follow up on it! Lots of people (Including myself) are waiting for more info before donating!

    • GuyBey0ndC00L

      NO jailbreak news out = (

  • Shawn

    @Sebastian make sure reset your PRAM and SMC for your system to fully utilize any upgrades you add to your computer

  • Fevostone

    No let talk jailbreak any news at all wen it’s it’s coming or if it’s 10% 50% 75% 85% 99.5%

    • GuyBey0ndC00L

      There simply no jailbreak news. Everyone (me 2) are waiting for that 7.1 jailbreak for iPhone 5 and up. iPad 2 and up.

  • Jay York

    Maybe the issue is with iOS 7.0.4 or with 5s?? My iPhone 5 running 7.0.3 never freezes or reboots.

  • Joseph A. Ahmad

    Excellent podcast this week guys, as always. I would like to chime in on the Touch ID sensor… I have an iPhone 5s and I have to admit, I clean it with a microfiber cloth every day and rub it down with alcohol (like Jeff mentioned) about once a week. I have reset my Touch ID finger prints a few times but honestly, I think like Jeff said, cleaning your phone and taking care of it is definitely something one should practice. With that being said, I do still encounter some inconsistencies from time to time. My iPhone 5s has only reset maybe twice over the past 2 months. I am running iOS 7.1 beta 1 and do see some improvements, but there are still bugs present due to the beta from what I see. So when Beta 2 comes out, I’ll let everyone know my experience with that.

    • Thanks for sharing, and well said.

      • Joseph A. Ahmad

        And since I’ve had a little time with Beta 2, the consistency of the Touch ID sensor, at least over the weekend as been spot on. The OS is still a little buggy as whole, but it’s definitely better. I am upset that the “dark keyboard” option was removed, but hopefully the final release of 7.1 would include a couple of nice features.

    Where was the “PEACE” from Cody? Lol

    • It was there, but there was some distortion in it, so it had to be cut.

  • Jonathan Talbot

    With the iOS 7 freezes, i seriously DO NOT know what you guys are talking about… i really don’t have any problems and serously don’t understand you..I mean 1 or 2 reboots a day???i doa reboot like every 2 months!!!!!!! and for Touch ID maybe the problem is that overtime it’sNOT degrading but it’s being even more precise when reading your finger… so after a while when it’s become extremely precise and there’s just a tiny bit wrong with your finger, it wont accept!

    Has anyone else been having trouble with downloading this podcast on apples podcasts app. For me, it gets stuck on waiting and doesn’t progress to downloading.

  • Matthew Matlok

    I can recommend the best gaming keyboard, its the SteelSeries Apex (Not Raw)

  • Jeroen Claassens

    I understand Squarespace asks you to introduce them but in my opinion it’s … well.. annoying to say the least
