iPhone 5S to have Fingerprint Scanning

According to the latest rumour, iPhone 5S will have finger print scanning.

The rumours about iPhone never seem to fade. It was only recently, we gathered all the available rumours and put under one roof and new we got a brand new rumour. The rumour does not take rest at all, doesn't it?

Now, the latest rumour is about iPhone 5S having fingerprint scanning technology. There are rumours about Apple to receive help from WinBond for fingerprint scanning technology. It would definitely give the over concerned users an extra advantage to lock the screen. If their handset is lost or stolen, the user can ensure that the thief will not be able to unlock the screen of the handset that easily. This feature has another benefit too. With the support of near-field communication (NFC) technology, this app will need the fingerprint of the user to authorise small transactions to be paid from a mobile wallet app.

Apple iPhone 5S finger Print Scanning

Though Apple has refused to utter a single word about the next iPhone product, the presence of Finger print scanning feature in it is almost sure. According to Apple Insider, the company has advertised for an engineer to work on-site at wholly owned subsidiary AuthenTec.

Authentec, which was acquired by Apple in the last year, develops fingerprint-scanning technology among other high-tech sensor-based systems. And this news had been oil in the fire. Rumours began to spread about such technologies appearing in a future iPhone or iPad device. But since this new job posting, there were no movement from either of the companies. So the rumour mill was rather clueless on the topic. But the advertisement of a job offer gave a spark to the rumourmongers.

Apple iPhone 5S finger Print Scanning

Till now, only a very few laptops have been providing the finger print scanning feature. The feature has not reached any smartphone so far. Apple's next gadget, rumoured to be a lesser budget one, will be the first to introduce it, if the rumour comes true. Its still doubtful whether Apple will dare to attempt such an experiment. It will be like serving a high cost delicacy to the common mass rather than exclusively to the elite class. If Apple successfully installs fingerprint scanning technology, it will take the company far ahead of the current rivals, for sure. We will have to wait for further confirmation.
