This week, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the great iPhone soothsayer, announced his guesses for Apple's iPhone 6, slated to be released sometime this year. We're most intrigued by whispers of a biometric fingerprint lock function. Mind you, it's not the same as the swipe-to-unlock feature. With biometrics built in, the iPhone would recognize your unique fingerprint and unlock itself with just the touch of your index finger.
The writing's on the wall: As many readeras remember, Apple aquired AuthenTec in July 2012. The company develops mobile device security technology that uses fingerprint sensors and identity management. And let's face it: Apple is overdue to release a game-changing update. By late summer, we should know if they stepped up to the task.
