TouchID also achieves a very simple aim that is to make it less desirable to steal, given the hassle one would have to go through to unlock it.
Coupled with the iPhone's new anti-theft features which experts gave the thumbs up, perhaps the Android flagship owners should start holding their phones tighter as they may be the new targets of thieves.

Anonymous, 13 Sep 2013HTC has battery problem initially it will be good after 6months it wont last even 5-6hrs..True.. But its not HTC's build fault.
The issue is with that laggy and resource hungry OS called android.
HTC and Samsung are forced to put everything tech to their phones.. but couldn't stop the lag.

You only proved that you're batting away without even reading, mindless paid Samsung troll that you are, we're used to it by now lol.
You guys have never managed to inflict the damage you think you do in your minds, with iPhone sales only ever rising, yet every year you same guys come in, and call each iPhone a flop.
The Max, 13 Sep 2013Why didn't you tried HTC One???? If you bought a HTC One, it will never dissatisfied you.HTC has battery problem initially it will be good after 6months it wont last even 5-6hrs..
L2Deliver, 13 Sep 2013ouch, i just hurt a mindle.... loyal Apple fa.... customer with a valid question that doesn't ... moreApologies if your question was sincere. My comment was aimed at the more immature haters.
On the subject of TouchID for iPhone 5s, Apple explained that it realised that fingerprint tech had certain limitations and thus Apple set certain safety controls:
1. Fingerprint data is only stored locally and never sent or saved on any server ever.
2. Extra safety feature, if iPhone is not unlocked for 48 hours, you will need to unlock using an extra password.
3. At no time is a scan or photo of the fingerprint ever taken, only a 'data set' is created, which cannot be used to reproduce a copy of your fingerprint.
[deleted post]Of course it won't lol look at the shares billions gone, it's a flop, and not many people reserving iPhone are they, as soon as it appeared on stage the shares dropped billions lol, I need a fly squatting bat, as I'm sick of people with an iPhone saying do you have a charger I can borrow, the battery is pants noooo power 1440 amp wow, not for the first time ever a guy answered his iPhone on the train and he admitted that he was embarrassed to pull it out of his pocket

You have better chance by dusting for fingerprint on the device itself and search whom the phone is.

Did we buy enough Pampers and Huggies, the hater crybabies need a diaper change lol
What do you have in your phone, a portable device prone to be left somewhere and lost / stolen / destroyed, that is so critical to require your biometric fingerprints in the first place? House's biometric lock understandable - but a phone?
Anyone will realise even if your fingerprint data is encryted, it only takes time to crack it. Is the data worth your fingerprints? Another overrated hype feature?
