To confirm that, we now can show you a leaked photo from a published story in France that shows the flex cable that connects to the home button with a "mysterious square element," which might provide power to the fingerprint scanning mechanism. Remember, iOS 7 beta 4 contained a file entitled "BiometricKitUI" that contained code inside that revealed how an Apple iPhone 5S user would set up his fingerprint scanner.
The scanner is expected to be used as a security measure to unlock an iPhone and also is expected to be used for mobile payments. Of course, we will know for sure on September 10th now that Apple has officially sent out the invites for the event. Both new models of the phone will launch on September 20th according to earlier rumors which were confirmed by the website for case maker Case Mate. The site shows a case for the Apple iPhone 5C shipping on September 20th.
