Newly-leaked iPhone 5S parts show no signs of fingerprint tech
Several more alleged parts for the iPhone 5S have leaked, reports say. Most of them have been seen in previous leaks, but the collection includes flex cables for Wi-Fi, a speaker, a vibrator, a Home button, a front-facing camera, a power button, and a dock connector. Also mentioned are a nano-SIM tray and a "speaker button;" the last item presumably refers to volume control.<br />
<br />
Perhaps more significantly, <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291043==http://www.phonearena.com/news/Spare-parts-for-Apple-iPhone-5S-leak-out-no-fingerprint-scanner-revealed_id45996" rel='nofollow'>images</a> show no obvious sign of a fingerprint sensor in the Home button. iOS 7 beta code has <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291044==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/29/code.string.hints.at.sensor.embedded.into.home.but ton/" rel='nofollow'>hinted that a future iPhone will get fingerprint recognition</a> via an integrated sensor, but if so, the technology may have to wait for an iPhone 6. Alternately, the depicted part may just be outdated, inauthentic, and/or for a different device, like <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/291045==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/07/29/info.said.to.come.from.within.apple/" rel='nofollow'>the iPhone 5C</a>.

I think we can assume that at least one iphone model won't have a fingerprint sensor! My bet is that there will be a sensor on another iPhone, which every one is calling 5S but will actually be called 6!

Good grief. Not another naming speculation war. :rolleyes:
