Alleged iPhone 5S render shows new home button /Touch ID sensor


A purported diagram of the Apple iPhone 5S from its user guide, shows off a new home button that is rounded without the traditional square imprint in the middle. The part is actually labeled Home button/Touch ID sensor. All signs, including a report we told you about in the Wall Street Journal, point to that long rumored fingerprint sensor touching down at last inside the Apple iPhone 5S.

We're just a few hours away from Apple's big iPhone press conference, and Nowhereelse.fr has just posted this render (from a "very reliable" source) that claims to show the iPhone 5S. The most notable change shown is of course, the home button, seemingly minus the usual squarish target and called the "Touch ID sensor". That is expected, considering repeated rumors (check out our roundup) including an apparent confirmation tonight from the Wall Street Journal, that Apple's next flagship phone will include a fingerprint sensor. Whatever the truth is, it will be unveiled at 1PM ET, and we'll be there liveblogging every minute.

You might be wondering what the purpose of the fingerprint sensor is. The idea is to offer a more secure and faster way to unlock your phone. The sensor is also expected to be used to help secure identifications for mobile payments.

We are now closing in the 10 hour mark until the 1pm EDT start of Apple's event. Of course, we expect to see the unveiling of the Apple iPhone 5S, seen in the render that accompanies this article, and the budget priced Apple iPhone 5C. If you're wondering when you might actually be able to purchase the phones, the latest buzz calls for a September 20th launch. And yes, there are some people already waiting online!
