Fake fingerprints can be used to hack iPhone 6

In the first weekend of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales, Apple has sold over ten million phones, according to a blog post on their website. Just three days into the iPhone 6’s sales in the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the United Kingdom, the phones are flying off shelves. A total of 115 countries will have access to the latest in Apple’s iPhone arsenal by the end of the year.

“Sales for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus exceeded our expectations for the launch weekend, and we couldn’t be happier,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We would like to thank all of our customers for making this our best launch ever, shattering all previous sell-through records by a large margin. While our team managed the manufacturing ramp better than ever before, we could have sold many more iPhones with greater supply and we are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible.”

The iPhone 6 features a 4.7 or 5.5-inch Retina high definition display and A8 64-bit chip and iOS 8, the latest Apple operating system. Several other things are built into the new iPhone 6 as popular additions to the former 5 series. This includes the controversial iCloud cloud storage system that was famously hacked in “Fappgate” this summer wherein candid and nude photos of celebrities were release on the Internet.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are available through major wireless carriers. The 6 Plus has the larger of the two displays.
