iPhone Fingerprint Scanner: Latest feature of the newest iPhone



Its already August and rumors are already spreading over the net that the new iPhone are coming at a very good catch of features. Although Apple has not confirmed it yet, referring to the unveiling of a new iPhone this September, many now are awaiting for the iPhone 5S which will include a fingerprint scanner.

Apparently, there were also evidences that Apple will also have a separate release a less expensive “iPhone 5C” model with a plastic case.

Basically, reports said that the fingerprint scanner comes from Apple rumor site 9to5Mac, which quote an iPhone developer who dug into a leaked version of the iOS 7 beta software. This software includes a folder called “BiometricKitUl” that best describe as a print scan that involves a user touching the Home button with their thumb.

Meanwhile, the folder feature does not necessarily means anything, but its worth mentioning that last year Apple bought Authentec, a security company mainly involves in building fingerprint sensors and encryption technology.

This means that the iPhone with a fingerprint sensor would be featured for a password-management and financial companies, who would be able to use it to make sensitive data carried on the device that much more secure.

On the other hand, Apple released a new version of the iOS 7 Beta software to app developers. The iOS7, which Apple previewed back in June, has a different design and some new features that includes Siri voices and a control center with easy access to setting menus.

With the said rumors, what would you most like to see in a new iPhone model?
