Is This Apple's Reinvention of the Button, AKA the iPhone 5S "Touch ID Sensor"?

By Gary Cutlack on at

Hot on the heels of the news that seemingly confirmed Apple's plan to integrate fingerprint scanning into its new iPhone 5S, we now have a photograph of said controversial button. This supposed marketing image describes it as the "Home button / Touch ID sensor."

The photo comes from Nowhereelse, which claims to have acquired a photo of a simple iPhone 5S user guide referencing the boringly-named Touch ID sensor. If genuine, it gives us additional confirmation that Apple's big new thing is indeed a biometric locking system. If fake, it shows that we'll all still write about anything on the global Apple Hardware Announcement Day. [Nowhereelse via Apple Insider]
