Apple’s plans for Touch ID in the upcoming and oft-rumored iPhone 8 seem to be in flux, with the company allegedly working towards one goal, but perhaps being forced to go another route.
The “iPhone 8,” which is believed to be Apple’s flagship for 2017, is rumored to feature a ton of changes and new additions when compared to previous generations.
Phew, 2016 is almost over. And it’s been a rough one. For everyone, including Apple. It wasn’t their best year – from financial letdowns to letting down loyalists. But there were some good moments in there. So let’s do a recap of all the good and bad moments from the past year. And because it’s 2016 and this is what we’ve become, let’s start with the bad.
Touch ID is very useful for authenticating purchases within apps using your fingerprint rather than entering your account password. This is a more secure form of authentication and also makes the process much faster.
Fingerprint technology is becoming a go-to source for security, both for manufacturers and consumers, and also a main point of contention in legal cases.
I have to say, one of the biggest changes in iOS 10 is staring you right at your face the minute you pick up your iPhone or iPad. The lock screen experience has been completely rethought. Almost everything on the screen is new (even the timestamp is bolder). There’s just so much to talk about. So let’s get to it.
Apple could be developing a way for iPhone owners to add a bit more security to their Mac, thanks to their iPhone.
