Purported iPhone 5S user guide points to 'Touch ID' home button

It's event day, but that hasn't stopped one more leaked image out of Asia that purports to this time be the iPhone 5s user guide that will come in the box alongside the phone. The most interesting part is it shows a name for the now expected fingerprint sensor under the home button; Touch ID. It also appears that the app icon outline on the home button may be gone, though that could also be down to the poor quality of the image.

The only other item of interest that the home button is clearly outlined with a silver ring, something which earlier leaks have already attributed to the 5S specifically because of the fingerprint scanner. All reports we've seen so far of the iPhone 5c suggest it has a regular home button, no fingerprint scanner.

Either way, we'll know soon enough. Help countdown the hours to the event by checking out iMore's extensive event preview.

Purported iPhone 5S user guide points to 'Touch ID' home button


LOL I sold my iphone 5 and saved my otter box case for the 5s and just realized it won't work because of print scanner !

I wonder if Apple will be nice and made sure the dual led flash fits all iPhone 5 case cut outs.

The silver ring for fingerprints should appease my security guru that requires biometrics plus two factor authentication. In the finance world we are security MAD like a dog who can't get his bone.

The only thing that quite possibly may be more ridiculous is the inevitable "What we didn't get." post, from Rene

Now that I read this I think the little gray circles on the invitation is a hint to the finger scanner

Good call. Now that I went back and looked at the sheet after you mentioned that, it TOTALLY looks like it could be the sensor. I mean, it doesn't match the other circles at all. They are designed completely different.

Wishful thinking but would be nice if Apple would surprise us all with iPhone 6 , new design and make all these leaks look more foolish than they actually are ! lol
