Gartner research note warns Apple rivals away from trying to copy firm     

From V3:
In a research note seen exclusively by V3, the analyst house wrote that while Apple made a big play about the inclusion of the technology in the device, there are still many issues that remain and that could prove frustrating to consumers.

“Companies should evaluate biometric controls but be sensitive to the privacy concerns that have been voiced in response to the Touch ID technology. Additionally, be aware that most biometric controls have not been reliable, and if the technology does not work well, consumers will easily become annoyed with the feature and stop using it,” the note said.
