Fingerprint scanners on your iPhone

By Casey Frye, CCNN Writer

Most iPhone users have a 4-digit password to lock their phones, but anyone can sneak a peek as they are typing it in! Wouldn’t it be nice if they had a biometric scanner to unlock the phones instead? Biometric scanners are devices that can recognize unique features of your body, whether it’s your face, eyeballs, or voice. According to several different reports, the new iPhone software might feature one that can read your fingerprint! If this is true, all you have to do is put your finger on the screen and bam! The phone is unlocked, no more passwords needed. Since no one else in the world has the same fingerprint, only you can access the phone!
