iOs 7.1 fingerprint & passcode not working

Apple iOs 7.1 update is out now
Word of caution, if you have a 5s with the fingerprint reader then make sure you know your passcode & that it works before doing the update as it doesn’t unlock with the fingerprint reader straight after the update, you’ll need to login with the passcode. 

I’ve just found this out for myself with my wife’s phone & unfortunately it’s not accepting her passcode either.

Thankfully (for my sake) I was able to login to icloud.com and remote wipe the phone, I then restored to the latest backup which came back without the passcode, phew!
