According to the reports given by Apple Insider, it is believed the new patent application is 13/918221 which hints at a massive upgrade and work on a Touch ID button which would not only be able to read fingerprints but also interpret finger gestures. This will further improve the safety and security of the user who are more oriented towards privacy and screen locks.

The bombastic title of this application is “Electronic Device Switchable to a User-Interface Unlocked Mode Based Upon a Pattern of Input Motions and Related Methods” and it will allow the user to unlocks with twists, swipes and patterns.

This application is made by the same developer named as Dale R. Setlak whose idea created the possibilities of the invention of Touch ID finger print sensors.

In a nutshell, this feature will be a big boost to the Apple’s security system as the new unlocking method will make it difficult for a third person or guest to get access of the phone that easily.
