After weeks of rumors about an iPhone with a fingerprint scanner for a home button, Apple just confirmed that its newly announced iPhone 5S will offer this feature. The touch ID sensor is 170 microns thin and senses 500 ppi. It can also scan your sub-epidermal skin layers.
In addition, the iPhone 5S’ home button scanner can be used to unlock your phone and authorize purchases. This new and improved home button sounds more like a sensor and less like a button. An obvious step forward, but in a world obsessed with big brother, are you ready to give your fingerprint to Apple?
