Apple to Integrate Touch ID Fingerprint Scanner Into New MacBooks, Magic Mouse and Trackpad?

Posted February 17, 2015 at 4:58pm by iClarified
Apple's new MacBook Air and MacBook Pro will reportedly feature an integrated Touch ID fingerprint scanner, according to a report from apple.club.tw.

The site says that Apple will soon release new MacBooks in three color variations: silver, gold, and space gray. The notebooks are also said to feature USB Type-C ports.

In addition, Apple will allegedly integrate a fingerprint scanner to bring Apple Pay and other features to OS X Yosemite. The Touch ID sensor will reportedly be placed "above the trackpad".


To bring the feature to older Macs, Apple is apparently planning to release an updated Magic Mouse and Magic Trackpad with a built-in Touch ID scanner.

While the site's report has yet to be confirmed, it has provided accurate information in the past, including leaked photos of iPhone 6 lightning port Assembly and rear shell, as well as, the iPad Air 2 logic board and A8X chip.

A logical move. Now let's start seeing it used to kill the password. Open it up to third parties so I never have to log in to websites or when leaving comments. That would be so useful.

That's up to the site owners choice. Imagine the coding they have to do. Unless it's owned by Apple, it won't work that easy.

So does your grammar slick!! It's Gold IPad, (1) IPhone, and Apple a Watch... It's a singular sentences that often requires reference to amount and the object iIphone is a brand name not an object.
