How is this new technology? Apple didn't invent fingerprint scanners, nor did they come up with the idea for embedding it in the bezel of a device... HP and Dell laptops, for instance, have had biometric scanners for a long time...

 

EDIT: Also forgot about the Moto Atrix....

You dont get it?! When others do it then it's just "o.k, nice" BUT when Apple does it then it's "NEW, INNOVATIVE, AMAZING, FRESH, NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE"....  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:  :rofl:

OMG THIS IS TWO FROM THAT ONE SITE IN THE SAME DAY YOU MUST BE PAID BY THEM!  or... they're another source for news?

 

 

And lol, of course. FINGER PRINT SCANNERS WERE INVENTED BY APPLE! so innovative.  I mean, it's not like anyone ever has even thought about using a finger print as an identifier! why couldn't I see that?  Thank you V-Tech for enlightening me.

Personally I hope they don't put this in the 5S or any iPhone for that matter.

I imagine this would cause a lot of people to drop their phone since it would be awkward to scan your finger on the bezel properly.

And because of that, I don't see that feature being something amazing that everybody would use.

 

Give us something that people would care about, such as a bigger screen or stereo speakers or something.

Or maybe I'm in the minority here. :)

Nah i think this is very useful, using a finger print scanner to access the phone instead of typing a code is amazing, but i do agree it may be awkward it would be cool if you could place your thumb on the screen and have it read that way, not sure if that is at all possible but would certainly be easier.

 

On a side note: the amount of pathetic posts on here quick to jump down apple's throat. At what point does it say they have invented finger print scanning in a phone? The article states they have invented a device that fits into the bezel of their phone, which is absolutely true... It's referring to this exact device, as apposed to buying something on the market and sticking that in there... and you can say what you want, this will be the first phone where it's done right and actually useful, and then everyone else will follow..

Agreed. I was also hoping it would be something integrated into the screen or even the camera.  That would be most impressive.

I honestly have no idea what you have in mind, but I put my thumb on the home button countless times a day. Same goes for practically every other iPhone user. And no, I don't drop my iPhone countless times a day on the floor as well. Even if the scanner is located next to the home button it's still just as easy to reach it.

This will only truly become mainstream when your fingerprint can be read by the screen...  I'm sure Microsoft's PixelSense Technology has legs, maybe at some point it will advance to the point where this would be possible.

I'm sure they'll have the prints transmitted and stored securely in a database that no government can access ;)

Umm what?  You do realize that the scanner will be integrated into the bezel, right?  Try doing a finger swipe on the bezel using one hand.  It's not exactly the best idea since you're loosening your grip.  The only location that it might be okay would be on top next to the power button.  Regardless you have to center your finger for a straight swipe which is pretty awkward.  I can guarantee that more people will drop their phones because of it.

I think this is definitely a good feature for those that need the extra security. It will just depend on how well it works. I'm guessing size has prevented them from including one in the past. It would definitely be a better implementation if you could just hold your finger in one spot rather than sliding it though.

The title "

states that they INVENTED IT. Which, in reality, another company (that they purchased) invented it, and they modified it. Pathetic fanboyism saying it's going to be better than the ones on the market AND saying they invented it.

Also, they're attempting to patent an idea that was invented a looooong time ago. Fingerprint scanner in a bezel (see motorola atrix)    It's just another attempt to be able to patent troll anyone who wants to use a fingerprint scanner.

duuurrrrr its gonna be the best because it's shiny and white! ah duuurrrr

Apple invention.  Got a chuckle out of me.  I am guessing it is innovative as well.

It all depends on the location and then there's also your second hand. I'm sure Apple will think of a good place... Anyway, I'll be looking forward to your research regarding how many iPhones are dropped because of the sensor.

Being required to use your second hand isn't a good solution.  Like I said, the top would probably be the only reasonable location for it, but even then, you're applying downward force via the swipe, and the swipe will be at an angle (due to the aesthetics of a hand) unless you re-position your hand.  If it doesn't recognize the crooked swipe, then you'll have to try again.  Even that sensor on laptops is really picky.  Having to repeat a swipe or re-position your hand all will attribute to more drops.  No research is needed because that's common sense...

AGAIN: It does not say they have invented scanning tech, it says they have an invention thats going to bring scanning tech to the iPhone, which, AGAIN: Is absolutely true.
