The most impressive feature is that Touch ID which is very new on Apple but not new when you compare with other Smartphones which has Finger print technology already.Today Apple revealed more information about iPhone 5S Touch ID and there are many disadvantages with it.


Spokesperson revealed more information for the questions been unanswered since the Apple event such as What is hackers hack your Finger print? the scanner doesn’t actually store your fingerprint anywhere else, instead it collects the fingerprint data and its encrypted , stored on the A7 chip, which makes it very secure.
What if someone cracks my iPhone Chip? they wouldn’t be able to use the data to create an actual fingerprint.
But still we have got more information which makes the Touch ID to step backward.. which are as follows..

Touch ID really means a lot and a alternative way without entering your passcode everytime, which is easier way to unlock your iPhone or to purchase apps without entering your Passcode. but what if you don’t reboot your iPhone for a week or so , or even you use your iPhone everyday? There are many possibilities that user can forget their Passcode which may bring you into a serious problem by pushing you not to unlock your iPhone and the only possibility is to Restore your iOS where no one want to do it unless you get such kind of problems..
Apple should bring an extra feature where you can unlock your iPhone with Face recognition , but still there are many possibility that anyone can Unlock your iPhone without your presence.
