Apple iPhone 5S new home button leaks: is that a fingerprint scanner built-in?
posted by Victor H. / Sep 03, 2013, 3:07 AM
The image right below shows a redesigned home key allegedly from the iPhone 5S. The new button is described to feel different to touch. The home key is said to have a brushed material feel and be a bit elevated, softer to touch. All of this could mean there indeed is a fingerprint reader integrated in it.
The image right below is too blurry to pass some form of judgment on it, but it’s worth noticing that with so much smoke there should be fire. In either case, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S on September 10th, so we’ll learn all about in just a week. Stay tuned.

Apple has lost its ground and I really doubt this device would change anything for them. I don't know what they are thinking right now and how they are planning to compete with other giants like Sammy, Sony, LG, Moto, Nokia, HTC and even Oppo ??

Only two smartphone manufacturers generates an adequate ROIC -- return on invested capital. Remember that [ROIC minus WACC] times Capital Employed = EVA. The first company is Apple. The second company is Samsung, who was adjudicated for stealing Apple's ideas. The rest of these companies might not be in the smartphone business or as a standalone, respectively. Moto got acquired. Nokia is being acquired. Apple lost ground??? Please stop drinking the koolaid.

Wasn't apple adjudicated for stealing Samsung's ideas and had to have the president bail them out? Speaking of ideas, which of those ideas that Samsung stole was an original idea? Slide to unlock, pinch to zoom, the rounded corner, rubber banding? Please tell us what Idea is actually Apple's to be stolen. Or, what did Apple INVENT? Remember the jury foreman from your favorite trial, prior art doesn't matter.

what apple has produced and what apple is producing is being copied by Samsung and other android devices. but fools like you have no knowledge about phones. you just go for big screens and powerful lagging devices with full of malwares. take a bit knowledge which I give you for your future better choices. buy iphone if you want a better quality phone with no lagging at all and without any virus or malware. buy heavy android devices if you want lagging, virus and lots of quality issues. and yes apple is not ahead it terms of only bank balance but apple is ahead in terms of selling device. iphone 4 and 4s is outselling your galaxy s3 and s4. these are older model.

looks like you need to get your facts right!!! The S4 outsold the i5. Comparing the sales of i4 and i4s against the s3 or the s4 is just plain old stupid!! older models against a flagship phone?? REALLY!!! Lets compare all of samsungs older models and compare it to the i5... Dumba$$ You are a typical fanboy!! no lte on iphone, lte sucks. no nfc on iphone, nfc sucks. Small screen on iphone, large screen sucks.... but when apple finally gets around to it, it's the best thing ever!! enjoying the extra row of icons on your i5?? your welcome. So glad i dumped my 4s!! not only am i enjoying the freedom... but not being associated with wacko's like you...#priceless

I don't understand why people believe that prices will save Apple. A good number of people want a large phone and iOS is not flexible enough to support different screen sizes and resolutions. Apple had an opportunity to fix that in iOS 7 but ignored it. Eventually Windows Phones will catch up and beat Apple in this department very soon. Come spring time 2014 Apple is going to be in a world of hurt due to slow iPhone sales. Apple is letting Microsoft catch up; Android is doing it's part. It will be Blackberry all over again. That new Nokia Bandit phone looks very good and I would buy that over Apple's offerings and I'm a Android guy.

Fake... they're keeping fingerprint scanner on the screen. How would a big finger be scanned through this tiny thing?

Maybe its just me but Im looking at an iPhone right now and the above button just looks to be turned 45 degrees. Call me crazy but I think this is a hoax or someone should try harder when posting a story.
