The US Patent And Trademark Office has published a new patent application from Apple which reveals that the company is working on a new watch that will make the wearable more useful to the user through the addition of the Touch ID fingerprint scanner support, news portal GizmoChina reported on Friday.

According to the Apple patent, the side surface of the smartwatch will feature a transparent cover alongside image sensors that will be extended via the Watch’s crown.


As per the report, this mechanism will enable biometric ‘Touch ID’ security on the watch.

The patent application also claims that to input the fingerprint a user needs to place his or her finger on the circular surface of the digital crown and rotate it.

Additionally, Apple is also reportedly planning to reintroduce a fingerprint scanner on at least one high-end iPhone model this year.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount.
