It is reported that the technology giant Apple is presently developing a new technology to enable the iPhones to be unlocked using the fingerprints of the owner. Apparently Apple plans to launch a new iPhone which will include this technology. Not to be left behind numerous other manufacturers are also conducting research about the means to include iris scanning and voice recognition for the same.
Sources reveal that since the last one year Apple has been conducting extensive research to figure out how to implement the fingerprint recognition technology and incorporate it in their cellphones. Apparently Apple had also purchased the biometric security firm ‘AuthenTec’ by paying around 235 million pounds. It is likely that the results will be visible with the launch of the new iPhone S5.
Incidentally earlier Samsung too had incorporated a ‘Face Unlock’ feature in its phones with the launch of Galaxy S III, but there were major glitches as the camera would get unlocked in case the phone detected a photograph of the owner. Apparently, the makers claim to have modified this drawback and the results were evident with the Galaxy S4 which was launched in New York in the previous week.
