iPhone 6 Touch ID sensor pics leak

iPhone 6 Touch ID sensor pics leak
We have seen enough leaks so far that we essentially know exactly what to expect from the outside of the next generation Apple iPhone, which means now we're getting into the realm of the internals. And, with that in mind, were getting the first leaked images of what could be the Touch ID sensor component of the iPhone 6.

The images come from ASCII.jp, and shows what is almost certainly a Touch ID sensor. The component looks almost identical to the one found in the iPhone 5s, except for a small difference in the connector cable. It's impossible to confirm if this is real though. And, if it is real, there's no way to know if anything has substantially changed about the component and how it functions. No doubt, Apple is trying to make the sensor faster and more accurate, but we don't know if that really needs new hardware, or just more software fixes like the ones we've already seen. 

We do know that Touch ID will be able to do more for users in iOS 8 as Apple slowly expands the functionality. Another interesting note from this week is that Apple tried and failed to get a trademark on the name Touch ID from the USPTO. That won't stop Apple from using the name, but at least it's nice to see that the USPTO does recognize generic names when it sees them.

In this photo we see view only from the top so how can you decide about thickness?

He's got an Amazon Fire Phone with 3D display, so he tilted the screen and looked at it from the side.

Also Apple is probably one of the most foolproof systems that exist so people that are too lazy to learn windows/linux/Ios/Android/Wp, use ios, because its soo easy

So you prefer Android, WP because its hard? U don't prefer easy? huh.. Well then you shouldn't use a smartphone at all. You a carphone instead of a smartphone. That can complex your life. As you prefer!

Of course Apple makes them better and clean. Take a look at smartphones before the iPhone. If it wasn't for Apple do you really think that people will be into "smartphones" which were PDAs running winmo back then. They invented the today's smartphone with a responsive touch screen and a fluid OS. And recently, take a look at fingerprint scanner. Its when Apple did it, Samsung and HTC wanted to stick it in their phones. I know that Motorola did it while back. But it was a horrible experience. And Apple's touch ID is by the best finger print scanner upto date on a smartphone. Its because Apple takes their time to master a certain technology and implement it on a smart device. Not like the half baked software and Hardware you see on Android devices.

Lol that's messed up. I love me some Android for years, but recently picked up a Lumia 928 to try out WP and its been awesome. The iPhone's hype is starting to get to me but I get reminded each and every time I pick up my wifes or moms iPad how much annoying ios can be. Its the f'n redirects that piss me off. When in app, a popup appears and without a second instance, I'm soaring into safari then in the app store. Then I'm thinking wtf happened? The cydia tweaks are pretty sweet, but is it worth it? If you want to, then go for it! We're all free to choose. Just do yourself a favor and don't turn into a superior stereotype about it. Haha

i got the iphone5s from tmobile for the test drive and how the things i take for granted on android wow. the iphone lock screen is nicer because of the look but you cant say open web page it wont work, the no back button was a killer for me and typing was hell i put a otto box on it so it would not brake while i had it so bye bye touch unlock. i took a pic and it was very warm 3200 k temp and then the zoom is one pinch scrolling took for ever like ten swipes to get to the bottom of the screen and no menu button to change to desktop mode. no widgets i had to open an app every time for weather. then remember where each app is because of no app drew so it became cluttered. good luck on you i time. if apple and google made a mixed phone android on apple with more google tech i think it would take the world by storm and cover 90% phone market.

I think befor you decide to buy an iPhone you should watch this video: "100 Things iPhone can't do Android phones can" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVTrazT99Ps Also I highly recommend you to watch Armando Ferreira's "Android vs iOS" video series on YouTube!

This videos are not only about Android they are about the difference between Android and iOS. If you don't want then don't watch them. I just thought that it could be interesting for you since you are considering to buy an iPhone. And these videos very well reflects difference between Android and iOS. :)
