iPhone 7 Plus - Touch ID not working

  ryanwalkit 22:09 25 Jan 2019

I replaced the battery in my iPhone 7 plus successfully. Battery time went from 4 hours to 48 hours.
But, ever since, I do not have the fingerprint (Touch ID) reader working. Everything else is working, latest updates. Anyone??

Hello ryanwalkit,

About your touchID issue, nit to be the carrier of bad news but I also had the same issue with my iPhone 5s. A trusted phone engineer told me point blank TouchIDs couldn't be fixed when they spoil.

He wasn't an Apple technician so you may be lucky to get your tech gadget fixed
