But according to Business Insider, it is not working as well for some users.
The security measures Apple has put into place for the Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 5s are quite incredible. There’s the “secure enclave” within Apple’s new A7 chip that holds all the encrypted fingerprint data, and today a new security measure has been discovered that prevents Touch IDs from being swapped on an iPhone 5s.
