  • Apple Tweaking Touch ID Ahead of New iDevices

    Last year, Apple wowed the world of mobile and impressed security experts with the implementation of Touch ID, the fingerprint scanning mechanism used to add an unprecedented layer of privacy and security to the iPhone user experience.

    With Apple's iPhone 6 as well as refreshed iPads and iPad minis in the works for an undetermined launch in the fairly near future, Apple is said to be working feverishly to finish tweaking the fingerprint scanning hardware used to bring Touch ID to life.

    Despite not being confirmed by Apple, is is almost universally expected that Touch ID will land on the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 (Chinese media reports that TSMC will produce 120 million Touch IDs this year - a spike of well over 200% since 2013). And when it does, expect a most more durable technology in place.

    "This next generation of Touch IDs used by the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3 will improve the sensor moduleís durability," reports GforGames. "Apple has also worked on expanding the Touch IDís functionality by working on a partnership with PayPal, and come iOS 8, third party app developers will have access to a new SDK that gives them access to the fingerprint scanning module."

    Apple's iPhone 6 is projected to launch in September, with new iPads expected to follow within 6 months thereafter.

      Guys, write about the pangu jailbreak tool. iOS 7.1.1 jailbreak and iH8Snow confirmed that it's safe. Just uncheck the checkbox. It adds a pirate store. Yesss!
