Apple’s new iPhone 5S is so advanced, it may be able to tell one nipple from another.

A Japanese man claims he’s used the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to register the impression from his nipple to successfully unlock his phone.

He posted a video on YouTube that shows another man who’s unable to unlock the same phone with his nipple.

Other users have posted videos claiming to have unlocked the latest iPhone with the paws of dogs and cats, as well as a nose or toes.

A German group also says its biometric hacking team photographed a fingerprint from a glass surface and printed it onto thin film that can be used with a real fingertip to unlock the phone.

At least one Twitter user claims to have unlocked his phone with penis, although video evidence proved inconclusive.

So far, Apple hasn’t responded to any of the more creative attempts to use or fool the Touch ID technology.
