Typical Apple Language...

... ---" Apple has resisted pressure to increase the size of the iPhone's display. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the company doesn't want to sacrifice one-handed operation of the phone."---

Because we can get people to purchase this size while we save tons of money and rake in even more profit. Then next year we will increase the size because we never hold to our philosophic agendas.

If that happens, they will then claim it is an "improvement" not seen on any other device before.

Again, Apple will then apply features/technologies other companies have implemented on their own devices from ages before, calling it "new" or "Apple ...
Dead a$$ John. I hate Apple with a passion. I know they're all greedy bastards at the end of the day but Apple is pure scum. Rotten to the core.

Premium feel.

Old Tricks Help German Hackers Bypass iPhone 5s Touch ID Security

Original Post's Here: ... »

Apple's Touch ID authentication system can be defeated using a well-honed technique for creating a latex copy of someone's fingerprint, according to a German hacking group.

The Chaos Computer Club (CCC), which hosts an annual hacking conference and publishes computer security research, wrote on its blog that their experiment shows that fingerprint authentication "should be avoided."

Apple introduced Touch ID with its latest high-end iPhone 5S on Sept. 10. A person's "fingerprint is one of the best passcodes in the world. It's always with you, and no two are exactly alike," according to the company's website.

A hacker who goes by the name St...
