iOS 7: Fingerprint, biometric technology?
Following Apple's $356 million purchase of fingerprint and biometric security firm AuthenTec last July, we can expect a number of security-related features embedded in the next-generation software. But what it points to, if the analysts and pundits are correct, could be a fingerprint sensor in the next iterations of the iPhone and iPad.
It could also open up the possibility that Apple may bring out near-field communications (NFC) technology to its phones to open up its devices to wireless mobile payments.
