Apple’s Touch ID provides a secure and convenient way for users of Apple’s iPhone 5s to access their device easily. Critics have pointed out several security flaws in Touch ID and some features of iOS 7. However, these are not deal breakers as Rene Ritchie from from iMore explains in a recent blog post.

Rene Ritchie:

  1. Convenience and security sit at opposite ends of the spectrum. The more convenient something is, the less secure, and vice versa. You can’t have both.
  2. iOS 7 contains a lot of new features to increase convenience or security. It’s up to us, the users, to choose which one is more important to us at any given time.
  3. Conveniences like Lock screen access for Siri and Control Center are easy to turn off.
  4. Security in the form of long, pseudo random passwords are easy to turn on.


In other news, with all the rumors of LG and Samsung upcoming curved smartphones. Someone thought it was a good idea (Not) to jump ahead and curved their iPhone 5s. What’s interesting about this experience – the iPhone 5s appears to be working after undergoing such a traumatic experience.
