Fooling Apple’s Touch ID with fake fingerprints?

Touch ID is the fingerprint recognition security system built into various Apple products including the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6 and iPad Air 2.

Fingerprints are unique and so fingerprint recognition should be a totally secure but then I came across the YouTube video below made by the guys at Tested.

In the video they use different methods to copy their own fingerprints and then use the copies on Apple’s Touch ID with mixed results, but worryingly some false fingerprints do unlock the device.
