The authors investigate the conceptual problem with iOS security, surveying a number of issues encompassing the utilization of biometric authentication. Specifically, they suggest that data collected from fingerprint scans for the purpose of authenticating an iOS user may be recorded by Apple, generating privacy issues. Furthermore, the potential for faking fingerprints, in addition to potential usability issues will be explored. A historical perspective of iOS versions is surveyed from a security standpoint, as well as its future potential moving forward with sophisticated authentication methods.
