Why doesn't Apple put Touch ID on a mouse?

Episode 1172 (2:07:27)

Les from United Kingdom
Apple Magic Mouse

Les is interested in Touch ID and how it can be used with laptops. Why hasn't Apple integrated this into computers yet? Leo says that Touch ID is a great new feature in the iPhone, and a better fingerprint reader is coming to the Samsung Galaxy S6 too. But if Apple doesn't see a market for it on a computer, they won't offer it. But if they notice others doing it, then Apple will swoop in and do it better.

Some are using the Knock app, but Leo's had mixed results with it. The chatroom says the Mac ID app will do it.
