    These are the things I think about. Not just having wrinkly fingers after a hot shower/bath, but also if you're running around all day running errands and you have dirty fingers, in whichever capacity...

    Cause if so, this would be an annoying issue to come across.:eek:

    Dirty fingers won't matter because the sensor scans beneath the skin.

    I don't know the answer with respect to "wrinkly fingers."

    You can scan multiple fingers. Your choice. If you loose your finger you still have a pass code to put a new fingerprint in.

    What if you're sleeping and your house sets on fire due to a faulty charging cable from China? What if you wake up, try to escape and twisting the door knob burns off your fingerprint? How can you unlock your phone and call the fire brigade? APPPLE WANTS TO KILL YOU!!!!
