Apple Patent Shows That TouchID Will Be Coming To Macs and iPads

Posted Oct 19, 2013

The next generation of MacBooks and iPads will likely have the fingerprint scanner known as TouchID that is already built in to the iPhone 5s, according to a patent uncovered by Patently Apple.  Since Apple is announcing a new line of iPads next week, it is possible that we could see TouchID in more devices soon.  Apple’s TouchID scanner is advanced enough to scan a fingerprint at comparatively high resolutions against rival systems without electrically shocking the finger.
