Apple announces 'Touch ID' for iPhone 5S

The emergence of a fingerprint reader allows the new Apple Smartphone to improve its security. This is the main and almost the only real innovation of the iPhone 5s by adding a fingerprint reader, which is quietly inserted into the new Home button on the device. “Touch ID” which will unlock your Smartphone by simply waving your thumb to the button without pressing. The user can also validate his purchases on the App Store and iTunes but not elsewhere, since this iPhone does not support NFC. It is also an additional protection against theft or false manipulations. But it is the business that is referred to this component. We know employees use more and more of their personal devices for work tasks, connect to their corporate network, this is the BYOD (bring your own device) trend. The iPhone is obviously well placed in this field, but IT managers who need to manage this new type of fleets sometimes regret the lack of security of the terminal, especially when faced with competing solutions.

With Touch ID, Apple clearly meets this requirement of securing BYOD with a powerful biometric solution that could bury those pesky passwords. Powerful because Apple says the A7 chip in the terminal, a 64- bit processor, is especially dedicated to the management and the strength of the encryption. The iPhone can also now boast of offering two-factor authentication. The most riding on the security companies can indeed impose fingerprint reading AND a password to unlock the device. So the apple climbs its upscale terminal to a new level of security and intends to strengthen its presence in business when BlackBerry is sinking. As for Android, it does not really favor with CIOs.

 It is also necessary that its technology is really developed. Biometrics is a technology and Touch -sensitive ID must demonstrate its reliability in a professional sense. According to the first taken in hand, the Touch ID configuration takes only 30 seconds. The function will also demonstrate its robustness against attacks. Because these technologies are fragile; it will be recalled that the facial recognition of Android 4.0 was diverted in two shots ladle. Again, with the help of the chip, Apple promises a maximum shielding. The issue of databases generated by Touch ID also raises questions. Where and how these data will be stored? Apple ensures that they will not be stored in the cloud.

Fingerprint Technology iPhone 5S Delayed

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, speaks of technical challenges of iPhone 5S which causing much delay. Everyone is eagerly expecting the release of the most popular iPhone 5S with a fingerprint technology. But just here there are unexpected challenges that have to cope with Apple. The manufacturer must somehow try to cause the black or white material under the glassy home button so that the fingerprint readers are not seen. Since right now no material is found which result seventh generation iPhone to come to market little late. Instead of summer it will be until the late summer or autumn. The same applies for iOS 7th Apple needs more time to develop and test the software because the fingerprint technique is difficult to integrate. And last but not least, the iPad 2 is packed with mini technical challenges. The reason here is the expected retinal display, which leads to complications in the production, according to Kuo. The bottom line remains Kuo's conclusion that the innovations of Apple this year come in the third quarter. We will probably have to wait if Apple mastered the speculative hurdles.
