Fingerprint Identity Sensor
Fingerprint scanner (Touch ID) is possibly the most revolutionary feature of the iPhone 5S. The fingerprint sensor is built into the Home button. The ring around the Home button is a sensor that turns on the fingerprint scanner. You can simply unlock your iPhone 5S by touching the Home button.
The user’s fingerprint is encrypted and securely stored on your phone and will not be accessible to apps or Apple’s servers or iCloud. Touch ID will herald the emergence of secure fingerprint log-ins on our smart phones, something you should expect other smartphone vendors to start emulating in months, assuming there are no patent hurdles to surmount.
