Analyst: Touch ID will be on all new Apple iPhone and Apple iPad models this year

Touch ID is expected to appear on both the 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch versions of the Apple iPhone 6. Kuo also expects the feature to be on the sequel to the Apple iPad Air and the sequel to the Apple iPad mini with Retina display. The analyst did tell clients that Apple might look to make Touch ID more durable by using tin in the production of the scanner.
The analyst sees 120 million iOS units shipping this year with Touch ID, rising sharply to 233 million units next year. TSMC's foundry is involved in the production of the Touch ID module, which also uses sapphire to prevent the fingerprint scanner from receiving a scratch that could play havoc with its accuracy.

One fingerprint to rule them all. It's good for casual security, bad for more serious security. Something better would be one of those security rings or even a smartwatch. Anything that is not biometric.

Then they'll price it at $800 for the 16gb. And the only difference from last year was the screen size . Same old apple . Steve jobs really took apple at the top but then again once his gone all his apprentice only thinks of nothing. Well history repeats itself . We all know what happen to apple when jobs was gone.

I don't get why people ( like 0xFFFF for example ) think biometrics (that are done right like Apple) are a bad idea for "serious" security. He doesn't even know how Apples Touch ID works, and how strong Secure Enclave and the whole process works. Probably didn't even know what Secure Enclave is until I said this. People crack me up. They act like us users are at a Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) security level inside the pentagon lol. Do they really think people with such an important need of privacy carry a smart phone, let alone a stock iPhone around lol!?!
