    Perhaps Apple never introduced this option in the past as to not compromise ease and simplicity with a password. But now with Touch ID it would be so simple and so exceptionally beneficial for some people. I for one, let many people use my phone for various random things but there are certain things I'd like to "revoke" access to while they're on my phone. Thoughts? :apple:

    At the very least, extend Parental restrictions to any app on your device.

    Well if you choose to use the finger sensor to make iTunes purchases then that will be a given. :)

    I would like to see Apple add in time restrictions to the phone like the computer except for apps you exclude.

    Currently the passcode lock and parental restrictions serve different purposes. Same will be true for TouchID. I'm not sure if opening up access to TouchID data is a good thing from a security standpoint. I'm happy letting that system get hammered by security professionals and crackers trying to break the system before access to it is widened.

    Not really "opening it up" as it is Apple just providing an API that returns true or false if the user's TouchID is valid.

    Exactly. I see no risk.
