This new feature, dubbed Touch ID, not only simplifies access to the device but also secures iTunes purchases verification without requiring a password.

Apple has made the setup process incredibly straightforward, enhancing security far beyond basic security questions like your mother’s maiden name.

In a nod to heightened security measures, Apple has ensured that the fingerprint data is stored solely on the device itself, never on Apple’s servers nor in any cloud storage, securing user privacy to the utmost degree.
