You can save up to five Touch ID profiles in the iPhone 5s, so naturally Etherington also felt obliged to experiment with the heel of his palm and the inside of his wrist. Touch ID properly recorded both prints, but had less consistent success recognizing and unlocking the phone.

You can expect a plethora of YouTube videos featuring users unlocking their new iPhone 5s smartphones with weird parts of their bodies in the coming day. Apple will launch the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c in the United States this Friday.

People are going to use their penises (penii, whatever). Just say it, article writer person. You know it, I know it, I know you're thinking it... just say it. Dudes around the world are going to use their wangs on the fingerprint sensor about 15 seconds after getting the phone and having a moment alone with it. Hell, some might just do it right there in the store.

I still say the new iPhones look like something my cat puked up after eating a bag filled with Froot Loops.

Situations in which you might need your cat to use the iPhone

Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!

OK. Good kitty! Get Daddy's iPhone.

No, bad kitty! Ignore the kitty pron. No, stop playing Angry Birds!

No! Not my stock portfolio!

Please, kitty. Help me! I'm the only one who knows how to work the can opener!

Oh, Thank God!
