On-Screen Fingerprint Identification More Real With Apple's Acquisition

According to reports (MacDailyNews, CNN), Apple has bought a fingerprint identification company, Privaris, that could help make the home button disappear and move the fingerprinting scanner that we now use for TouchID onto the iOS screen itself.  Furthermore, it could bring TouchID to other Apple products like the Mac as well.

Remember that to make TouchID a reality and as useful as it is today, Apple sought and bought AuthenTec back in the middle of 2012 (Phone Arena).  And when did TouchID show up on the iPhone?  A year later on the iPhone 5S in September of 2013.

Think it'll be on the next iPhone this year or next?  More at On Apple.
