Apple offers additional details on Touch ID, iPhone 5s won't store fingerprint images

Apple offers additional details on Touch ID, iPhone 5s won't store fingerprint images | Web and Technolgy | Scoop.it

Touch ID is a new security feature built into the home button of the iPhone 5s, designed to allow users to unlock their phones and authorize iTunes purchases with a finger scan. Amid fears about the security of Apple's new Touch ID fingerprint sensor, an Apple spokesman has told The Wall Street Journal that the phone will only store the data used to recognize fingerprints, rather than actual images.

this article shows how fast technology is advancing and this added security measure will perhaps help reduce the amount of phone theft; especially if more articles are written on the topic as it will make the public aware of this new design. -shannon wilson

wow, technology is expanding so fast. this is a great feature as is serves a =s a security mechanism and thus, allowing only you to have access to your device. im not sure how thiefs with make use of this phone once they have stolen it, because it will be utterly useless, so this could be a good thing, maybe they wont even bother taking someone elses phone as it will never be able to be used without the persons fingerprint.

If security is an issue with mobile deployments you should look at the 5s.
