Just a warning, do not break the touch ID button on an iPhone 6, then get it repaired by a non-Apple phone repairer. The touch ID is paired to the SOC on the iphone. If it's broken you can't use fingerprint, get iOS updates or do a recovery. Only Apple can fix this apparently (for a "small" fee).

 

I think iOS 9.x is the main culprit here.

Is your Android and iOS WiFi on KRACK?

APPLE BACKS DOWN!

 

Looks like error 53 was NOT a security feature, it was a feature for factory testing for broken touch ID buttons but it got into the release code.

 

A patched version iOS 9.2.1 release will allow you restore iOS with a broken or 3rd party touch ID button (via iTunes)
