Purported iPhone 5S Box Shows Off Redesigned Home Button


In less than two days Apple will finally unveil everything about its upcoming iPhones. The event has already been scheduled and the press invites have already been sent. Nevertheless, the rumors and leaks won’t stop coming in until the official announcement is made. A couple of pictures of a purported iPhone 5S box have surfaced online. The box shows off a redesigned home button, which hints at the possibility of iPhone 5S having a fingerprint scanner. It has been rumored time and again that Apple will add a fingerprint scanner in iPhone 5S, though no concrete proof of that is available right now.

The iPhone 5S picture on the box appears to be running iOS 7 and the branding on the side is identical to that on the iPhone 4S box. However, that alone does not prove that this box is genuine. It is more than likely that the box is a fake, but there exists the possibility that it might be the real deal. Over the last few weeks a few home button flex cables of iPhone 5S have leaked, all of them have hinted at the presence of a fingerprint scanner. So can we assume that this feature is making its way into the next generation iPhone? One can’t say for sure, but if it does have the feature, that would definitely give Apple’s latest smartphone a leg up on its competition. [Images via C Technology]
