Leaked Apple packaging is rare, however according to Nowhereelse.fr, the image you see below is the user guide for the iPhoen 5S. On the guide, you'll notice the tweaked home button with a ring around it, as we saw a few days ago. However even more interesting is how the guide labels the home button as “Home Button/Touch ID sensor” -- corroborating reports of the fingerprint sensor on the home button.

'Touch ID' as a name hints out the expected unlocking capability of the device (users simply hold the home button for a few seconds to unlock their device).

Apple is expected to announce the iPhone 5S along side the new iPhone 5C today at its iPhone event. Our rumor roundup is located here, and our live coverage of the event is locatedhere.

Siri that they introduced to 4s is way more helpful than this touch id thing! This is cool but I don't mind using password to unlock the screen. If this is the reason they make 5s, Apple really disappointed me! I guess most of us won't care about this and we'd rather have a bigger screen than this feature.

This isn't the only reason why they made the new iPhone 5s.. The new iPhone is twice as fast in graphics and processing. It has the new A7 chip from apple, which is a 64-bit processor. This is the first phone to ever get a 64-bit processor. This means it is alot faster, if you watch the keynote about this, you'll probably understand a bit more about the new processor. They also got a larger camera sensor, and a new LED flash. The larger camera sensor let more light in the picture(s) and improves the picture quality, i don't say the iPhone got the best camera, but it is better now than before. The new LED flash has two colors on it, one cold(the upper part of the led) and one warm (the one at the bottom) This makes skin tones etc... more realistic than before, apple got some great examples of this at the keynote.
