The Chaos Computer Club has reportedly figured out how to defeat Touch ID, the fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 5s, with a fake finger. The method involves taking a 2400 dpi picture of an approved fingerprint, laser printing the image with a thick toner setting, and smearing latex on top to create a mold. Starbug, the hacker who performed the tests, said that the main difference between Apple’s sensor and others is that Apple’s has a higher resolution. follow link

Touch ID Already Defeated
Just plain silly.
However, it's not a vulnerability that I'm terribly worried about, since it takes prolonged access to a phone and a significant level of skill.
If your iPhone contains sensitive material, you may simply use the traditional password that is available as an additional measure, after you passed the Touch ID test.
