Leaked Front Assembly Of The iPhone 5S Shows It’s Just As Pretty As The iPhone 5

IMG_9026

This is probably the front assembly of the iPhone 5S. Sadly, it looks pretty much the same as the iPhone 5, which is to be expected: the iPhone 5S is anticipated to be an incremental release over the iPhone 5, sharing the same look as the previous generation device just like the iPhone 4S and iPhone 3GS before it.

So nothing to be excited about? It’s hard to tell, but we have yet to see the home button array for the iPhone 5S, and that’s where rumor has all the new hardware in the next-gen iPhone going: namely, a fingerprint sensor under the home button¬†which lets you lock out anyone who isn’t you… or who has cut off your finger.

    What actually updated and why we will buy the 5s.

    For me a fingerprint sensor is very bad idea. I have psoriasis on my hands badly and I’m always scratching the skin on my fingers. I’d probably get locked out of my phone in short order.
