iPhone 5S home button leaks in perfect clarity: Apple to include a fingerprint sensor
The iPhone 5S home button has long been rumored to come with a fingerprint reader that could be used to unlock the device easily or for cashless payments. Now, we get to see the button and the wiring, and the leak is once again coming from prolific Apple leaker Sonny Dickson.

We have a hard time recognizing any particular part that would lead us to a more definite conclusion, but we’d welcome you to take out your magnifying glass and Sherlock Holmes spirit and examine the images below for yourselves.
