Apple has developed a special application that will be used in the salons of the mobile operators and retail stores Apple Store to demonstrate the iPhone 5s touch id fingerprint scanner . Fingerprint sensor for the new flagship is built into the Home button and called Touch ID. It allows you to safely unlock your mobile device, as well as automate the password when making purchases in App Store, iTunes Store and the iBook Store.
To demonstrate the principles of the Touch ID, Apple developed a sample application that will be used by buyers to purchase iPhone 5s in retail stores Apple Store and third-party retail outlets of the company since September 20.
To test Touch ID, a customer can launch the demo app. In this app, a customer can setup the device to recognize a single fingerprint. When the setup process is complete, the application will direct the user to place that fingerprint on the Touch ID sensor on the Home button. The application will then show that the Home button successfully read the fingerprint. Then, the app will tell the user to place a different finger on the Home button. The app will then show a red fingerprint outline to note that the authentication was not successful.– writes 9to5Mac.
Application is configured in such a way that clears the scanned fingerprints buyers after each session. In addition, the user can not see how the scanner helps to remove the block from the device and secure purchases . However , opportunities demo application is enough to get an idea of basic functional Touch ID.
Consultants to the Apple Store to tell customers about the Touch ID support up to five different prints. In addition to the fingerprint sensor , the staff should pay attention to shoppers on the other features of iPhone 5s: 64- bit processor A7, M7 coprocessor and an updated camera iSight. [Via 9to5Mac]
