Iphone 5s Fingerprint Recognition

Introducing Touch ID — a new fingerprint identity sensor. What does it mean? You can now place your finger on the Home button and your iPhone will unlock. Instead of entering your password, your fingerprint can approve purchases from iTunes Store, the App Store, and the iBooks Store – can you say convenient! Touch ID can read your fingerprint at any orientation…whether you are portrait, landscape, upside-down and inside-out…it is capable of 360-degree readability.
