Touch ID: what is it and what is it with?

Starting with iPhone 5S Apple phones (and not only) are equipped with an interesting option – Touch ID. In Russian, this is just a fingerprint scanner, and not a fake one that could have been downloaded from the Play Store on androids before, but a real sensor that allows you to unlock your phone, make purchases and even verify your identity for authorization in applications. It is located directly in the Home button.

Interestingly, the sensor can remember up to 5 different fingerprints at the same time.
