iFixit Says Leaked Components Appear to Corroborate Fingerprint Scanner for iPhone 5S

iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens has looked at the recently leaked photos of the alleged iPhone 5S Home button with fingerprint scanner and determined that if legitimate, they corroborate the rumored feature.

Here is Wiens' response to an email from MacTrast about the button.

-----
It looks like the home button will still have a physical clicking action to it still like the 4, 4S and 5. The additional square section next the the button is something new and probably suggests a fingerprint sensor given all the rumor wire chatter on how Apple is expected to add that feature. It looks like that part of the cable flips over the button and sits between the clicking action and the plastic button cover.

So I’d say yes, these photos, if legitimate, corroborate the fingerprint rumors

As you likely know, Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10th.

The fingerprint scanner is part of the prism program to send pic, data and fingerprint to the USA government these way the criminals will be caught easily, and your fingerprint will say a lot about who you are where you are what are you doing all this crap will be useful when in the future we start living in a post democracy called police state. Welcome to the new world order, Isheeps!

More like your world of imagination of thick heads. What if I used fingerprint scanner in the middle of Sahara dessert with no towers, satellite, anything around me, would the government find me then? What if the phone is new with no information about us, you might wanna get your facts straight before posting what is a myth of what you think is gonna happen unless you can prove what I said, triple dare you!

I don't know about u guys but I don't really want my finger print traveling all over on all the servers, and one more thing nobody ever thought that it's a touch screen and it will be really easy to lift the finger print from the screen and use it on stollen iDevices???

I'm glad they're keeping the physical button. It's so much better than the virtual ones like on the androids. That one button is awesome. It's not broken, don't fix it. Leave it alone please. Give us a better battery instead.
