Yes it should work, you possibly received a faulty part if Touch ID never worked.

Unless you have damaged the home button flex yourself.

Though when i asked if it works with a new part, they said that it doesn't work with after market part. You have to buy it from approved apple retailer.! So i was worried that it wont work.


Who is they? Must be apple or something because they like to usually say stuff like this which is misleading as usual.

Anyway. The iPhone 5S lightning connector assembly you can buy pretty much same as original from even eBay, iFixit or any reputable website and they should work fine. Part number doesn't even have to be the exact same one at times.

If you buy the charging port connector it will still work if you have the original Touchid button from the original phone. If you put a new touchid button in, the functionality of the button will work, but not the Touchid.
