Certain new capabilities such as the improved OS -  iOS 7, Faster processor and new camera have been some of the talking points, but its the Fingerprint ID thats now a slight cause for concern.

Rumours of the hacking capabilities have been circulating for a few days now, but its come to light that a group known as the 'CCC' (Chaos Computer Club) have demonstrated that the fingerprint of an iPhone 5s can be hacked.

Although this is something to consider and keep on top of, there should be no real cause for concern. Keep your iPhone safe, look after it and ensure all security is set up correctly.
