Apple has just made the official announcement of the iPhone 5S which is going to be out in the markets from September 20. The iPhone 5S has many new features which includes the improvised camera and the latest additional feature in the Apple Gadgets, the Touch ID sensor. The iPhone 5S has a whole new Home button redesigned to make the iPhone 5S more exclusive. The iPhone 5S home button is equipped with a ID sensor that allows you to scan you fingerprints which will be used in the locking and unlocking the iPhone 5S. This is for the first time that Apple has introduced this type of feature in any of its gadgets.
Apple Said that the finger print scanner which is embedded in the whole new home button will allow the users to log in to the phone more quickly, and it will also prevent the unauthorized access from anyone who guessed or stole the pass code of the original user. The Company also added that the fingerprint will also be used to make purchases on the iTunes store. The finger print is stored in the device and will never be backed up to the cloud.
At the event in Cupertino, the Company said that the fingerprint scanner uses the technology which Apple acquired last year when it bought security company AuthenTec for $356 million. And this new Scanner will ship with the new iPhone 5S on the September 20th and it will not be shipped with the iPhone 5c.
