iPhone 5s – With Finger Print Reader – Again a new trend by Apple in smart phones.
The iPhone 5S’ fingerprint reader will act as a first line of defense against would-be thieves and hackers — even intelligence agencies, to a degree — against identity and content theft, fraud, and surveillance.
Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller said at the Tuesday event that the Touch ID fingerprint scanner will be used to access a user’s device quicker, as well as preventing unauthorized users from accessing a device’s data. App purchases can also be used with the scanner. See Also: Ipad Accessories for Home
The fingerprint data will be stored on the device, and will not be backed up to iCloud, Apple confirmed.
