    Default Touch ID in my iphone5

    I have the iphone5 and I was wondering instead of buying the iphone5s (just for the touch ID) could I buy a touch ID and put it into my iphone5, and we're could I buy it....
    Thanks jordan

    No can do.
    It's a chip in the device, not an app.
    Good Luck

    The answer is a definitive NO. There is way more than buying the sapphire wafer and everything else that goes along with making it work like the software and many other propriatary items internally. Buy the 5S if you want touch ID.
