i do feel the finger print scanner is one way forward and i'm pretty sure it will be improved on the iPhone 6
Its one step at a time
You're kidding right, the fingerprint scanner was hacked by someone in 48 hours the things a joke.
I'm not an Apple fan boy, I don't even own an iPhone but I cannot help thinking some folks are missing the point. Most security measures can be bypassed if you give it enough time, thought and effort. If one actually thinks about the level at which we're talking here, which is basically Joe Public and their smartphone, surely the finger scanning functionality is more secure than a number code or finger swipe gesture. As stated earlier, you can easilly see the swipe gesture people use by tilting to the light and following the grease stain or you could blag a number code by looking over someones shoulder in the shopping queue. Copying someone's finger is an altogether more complicated process.
It may not be perfect but personally I applaud Apple for giving it a bash
Yep, that is why Apple are paying people to try and hack them.

You need to take a deep breath and think about things alittle more, any device left in the right hands for a length of time can be cracked, most people like you and i maybe tech savy and have pulled a lot of computers apart or other electrical device for repair but it would of taken us a lot longer for us to figure a way of cracking the finger print scanner.
Anyway even if you got you hands on an iPhone 5s now simonlewis and tried to repeat CCC knowledge it would still take days to achieve what you needed to do to just get passed the finger print scanner, and then what?
You still need the codes to make the phone yours

+1 and i too will not be buying an iPhone
Exactly, given enough time and know-how, anything can be hacked, just ask Gary McKinnon. Meanwhile, the 5S's fingerprint scanner is a, umm, handy everyday solution for 'normal' users.
If anyone wants to scratch their Apple-bashing itch, may I suggest they do so in a more positive way, such as supporting this Friends of the Earth campaign re Bangka tin mining - click
