Apple's iOS 7.1 update brings no improvement for the Touch ID

Many were looking forward to the Apple’s latest iOS 7.1 and hoping that things would get better with the fingerprint sensor and there were many indications from the past leaks that with this update Apple was planning to improve the output of the Touch ID sensor.

I have a feeling that the sensor might be broken…"
