Not ordered your iPhone 5s from Apple yet? Then you could be in for a lengthy wait, with the Cupertino company slapping the device with a disconcertingly vague ‘October’ shipping date.

Demand for the iPhone 5s appears to have been sky high, although Apple is yet to confirm how many handsets it shifted during opening weekend. Despite a lukewarm receptoin in some quarters, the figure is expected to be impressive.

This news comes as a new report suggests the Touch ID sensor can be bypassed by obtaining an original user’s fingerprint from everyday objects and making a copy of it using a printer and wood glue.
