After some months of using the Touch ID on iPhone 5s it started to fade out. Now reports are that Apple is aware of this issue and working on a fix.

Appleinsider reported that apple is preparing software update for Touch ID issues. While AppleInsider didn’t confirms that apple will push the fix with iOS 7.1 or not. Apple is currently beta testing its iOS 7.1 whose beta five was released some weeks back. Apple has made various UI tweaks with iOS 7.1 beta. But there is no news about Touch ID fix. So it is difficult to say that whether iOS 7.1 will carry this fix or not. iOS 7.1 will release during mid-march.
