Sketchy photos claim to show iPhone 5S box with twked home button as fingerprint sensor speculation incrses

Only days away from ’sSeptember 10thiPhone event,new photos have come outwhich claim to show the box for the upcomingiPhone 5S. The same site has also alleged photos ofiPhone 5C packagingin the past. Notable here is the twked home button design, which apprs to ditch the iconic inset square in favor of a ring around the edge.These new s line up witreviouswhispersaboutthefingerprint sensorand also match photos we’ve seen ofiPhone 5C packaging, which carry color-d wallpapers based on the base color of the device itself, similar to theiPod nano.Last month,we reportedthat the iPhone 5S might have a different type of etching around the edge of the home button:Also contrary to recent talk, the new Home button’s design will not be noticbly convex. Perhaps the shape has changed, but the twked button is nothing distinct enough for the iPhone 5S to be identified as anything but an iPhone 5 by the untrained eye. There’s the possibility, however, that the etching and border of the Home button could become more shiny and look slightly different.Some have also speculated that thegray ringson the event invitation are references to the new fingerprint sensor.Fox News’s Clayton Morris has echoed similar thoughts about the fingerprint sensor on TwiT. The Wall Street Journalbelieves the same.Of course, the legitimacy of these s can’t be verified. While they look accurate enough to pass, the corners of the phone look slightly distorted, either indied tampering, or perhaps it’s just how the light reflects off of the chamfer. (This can be seen in photos on’s website.)Both the iPhone 5S and lower-cost iPhone 5C are expected to be unveiled onSeptember 10th.
