Packaging for Apple iPhone 5S leaks, confirms fingerprint scanner
posted by Alan F. / Sep 06, 2013, 12:41 PM
Other changes include a longer lasting battery, a faster A7 processor and the oft-rumored fingerprint scanner. Speaking of the scanner, a look at the iPhone 5S box shows that the home button on the handset will have a ring around it, confirming the presence of the fingerprint scanner on the phone. Not only will it be used to securely allow the phone to unlock, it also will help with mobile payments to help identify the phone's owner. In addition to the traditional black and white color options, we should also see two new colors available for the iPhone 5S, gold and graphite.
September 10th is drawing nearer. Plan on keeping your eyes here as we cover the historic unveiling of not one, but two new Apple iPhone models on Tuesday as the budget priced Apple iPhone 5C is also expected to be unwrapped. Both phones should launch on September 20th.
Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Well then you are not going to buy it or at lest wait till 2016 . besides there is a rumour about Apple going to release a phablet. Its about 5 inch or so. A phablet for iusers and a big smartphone for others (since 5 inch is pretty small for todays phablet standard. Still it's just a rumour though)

Always wondered what is the fingerprint scanner good for in a mobile phone.

If the scanner is of good quality... it is the most convenient way to unlock your phone while keeping a high security method... Face Unlock is good for some situations, but it is usually slower and you need good ambience light. Pin is not bad but it is easier to crack, and also slow in comparisson Pattern is now my preferred method after I gave up on my old Atrix 4G... but the fingerprint scanner will always be my favorite way to unlock my phone... Also it makes more sense to have it on a phone than a computer, since we unlock hundreds of times a day the phone, while only a few times a day a computer...

The ring around the phone is most likely an LED ring that will either light up red or green, depending on whos's trying to access your phone. And to the ding dong above^^^ Have fun not buying it because the 4" Screen is here to stay at least for this time around

Ha! I get what he did! You see guys, he added "i" in front of "Chump" to make "iChump." He's making fun of the fact that Apple products are similarly named! That's pretty clever man, I wish I had thought of that! ...or should I say "iWish iHad iThought iOf iThat!" Wow that felt great to say! I feel so much better making fun of people now that I can do it in a clever and sophisticated way! :)
