Tweaked iPhone 6 Touch ID Sensor Purportedly Leaked


It is believed that Apple is now in the final stages of preparation before mass production of its next generation iPhones begins in a few weeks time. There has been no shortage of purported iPhone 6 part and panel leaks and today we get to see what is claimed to be a tweaked Touch ID sensor for the iPhone 6. Its assumed that the next generation iPhone will have a fingerprint sensor since there’s really no reason for Apple to take it away.

The pictures show that this purported Touch ID sensor for iPhone 6 has had its mounting bracket moved to the opposite side of the ribbon cable. This would mean that Apple has moved around the internal components a bit. That is already expected since the next generation iPhone is believed to be thinner and lighter than ever before and that feat would require some shuffling under the hood.


Even the sensor appears to have been slightly redesigned, there’s new shielding on the rear and the overall shape seems slightly different when compared to a Touch ID sensor from the iPhone 5s.

It is not known at what stage of manufacturing these photos were taken. Touch ID components are made by TSMC and assembled by another partner in either mainland China or Taiwan.

The new iPhones are expected this September. They’re believed to tout significantly larger displays and a new A8 processor.
