iPhone, NSA and You

On September 20, 2013, hundreds of people stood outside the Apple store for the new iPhone. Some even camped the day before the launch. In just a few weeks, 9 million iPhone 5s and 5c were sold. The iPhone 5s featured an new finger print scan which is an alternative unlock system and a way to buy apps. It "stores the finger print data into its processors". Apple even said that the finger prints would not be on iCloud or into their server."Touch ID does not store any images of your fingerprint. It stores only a mathematical representation of your fingerprint."  But this statement is questioned by many people.

An Anonymous video claims that Apple now work with the NSA on Youtube. The touch ID is a way for the NSA to collect your finger print. He/She even claimed that "Apple is hiding the truth that the government controls Apple." "they will invade your privacy and instant locate you". The hackers highlight the fact that AuthenTec, the company behind Apple's fingerprint identification technology, has strong ties to "the most powerful and corrupt Defense Department and Intelligence Community contractors and figures.""
