Great news for users of Apple iPads and iPhones who are worried about security.

Today Apple announced a new sign on identification system. It is known as Kissing Identity Security Signon Mechanism for iOS.

Apparently their researchers have found that kissing the screen of your Apple device is several magnitudes more secure than even fingerprints.

The pressure of the kiss, the length of the kiss, the shape of the lips and the little lines that form when you pucker, are extremely unique.

Apple are releasing Kissing Identity Security Signon Mechanism for iOS in the next update for the operating system today Friday 1st April.

Tim Cook has been quoted as saying not to worry about the long and complicated name "... Here at Apple we say KISS MiOS"

Chapstick is not appropriate in todays world of equality. It needs to be PersonStick
