Forensics : Bypassing IPhone fingerprint system is cheap and easy to do

In this Sept. 20, 2013 file photo, a customer configures the fingerprint scanner technology built into the Apple iPhone 5S at an Apple store in Wangfujing shopping district in Beijing.

Just buy some special ink jet printer ink that conducts an electrical charge. Now to just match up all the fingerprints stolen from the IRS to the actual person’s iPhone. No gonna happen. Cops might like the idea. Fingerprints are not protected  from non-consenting searches.
