Wouldn't be an upcoming product launch without yield issues.
This is pretty much how I believe (in my opinion) that Touch ID login on Mac should work anyway. I believe its an incredible waste of effort to build Touch ID hardware into Macs, or trackpads, or the mouse. You already have your iPhone setup for Touch ID, it already pairs to your Mac without effort....build this in to the OS and done. If you want Touch ID authentication, you authenticate on your iPhone or AppleWatch and you're done. I really, really don't see the need to...
Its really unbelivable, the troll melt you have undergone. The AppleWatch is the ultimate iPhone accessory. Every mundane, repetitive task that is conquered by a glance at the wrist is a win for AppleWatch usability.
Why? They will only sell on iOS anyway, it makes no difference.
Been saying they should do this for 5 years now...it was only a matter of time. Nintendo's profits have vanished thanks to iPhone. Their only hope of remaining relevant and bringing in any mobile gaming revenue is through licensing their IP to popular platforms.   Dare I say, a solid release of titles such as Super Mario might be enough to motivate me to get a dedicated bluetooth hardware controller for iOS.
I'm a pro. I use a Retina iMac. Can't wait to get this for mobile uses. Shows how much you know.By the way, nothing makes a person look more like an idiot than when they pretend to know what Steve Jobs would do.
 Those claiming that Force Touch requires a flexible display don't have the first clue about what Force Touch is, or how it works. They look at Apple's examples and literally believe the screen is supposed to dimple when touched. There are a lot of people that shouldn't be allowed to comment, for reasons of public sanitation.
I'm not in favor of getting rid of the Home Button, but will reserve judgment to see how the combination of Force Touch and Taptic Engine work together. It may be possible that Apple can simulate a tactile button significantly enough to warrant removal of the Home Button.
Force Touch is going to be a VERY welcome improvement to iPhone Multi-Touch. The "Tap-and-Hold" gesture that has been around since the very beginning is one of the weakest and most difficult gestures to both perform and program.   The range of Force Touch ability and it being built in to the OS is going to dramatically improve interaction with Apps. This is a very, very good thing.
Why shouldn't they? They are now a huge market segment. The Gold iPhone was really for China. It was surprisingly popular in the US.
