Looks like the iPhone is set to become something of a detective tool. According to PayPal’s chief officer of information security, this will happen later this year. At the Interop conference he said something about wild rumours of a large technoligal company based in Cupertino releasing smartphones with fingerprint readers later this year. Not only one iPhone, bear in mind, but several. And the technology will probably make it in the next iPad.
This news corresponds with a report, according to which Apple is using a capacitive Home-button made from sapphire crystals and having an integrated fingerprint scanner.Source: PhoneArena
