Packaging for Apple iPhone 5S leaks, confirms fingerprint scanner

Packaging for Apple iPhone 5S leaks, confirms fingerprint scanner
With the Apple iPhone 5S expected to be introduced next Tuesday, it really should be no surprise that a picture of the packaging for the next full-priced iPhone has been leaked. The Apple iPhone 5S is expected to look like the current Apple iPhone 5, but with some changes here and there. For example, a dual LED lozenge shaped flash will be on the new model, as well as a new camera sensor with a lower f/2.0 aperture. The latter will allow Apple iPhone 5S users to take clear pictures in low-light conditions which allows Apple to compete with Nokia and Sony in this regard.

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!
