A new shot published by Letemsvetemapplem — which has a credible history with Apple leaks in the past — suggests that Apple might make a major change to the home button in iPhone 5S, replacing the icon that exists there now with a big, glowing Apple symbol.

On one hand, it seems a little unsubtle for Apple. A little too strongly branded. Apple usually places their logo on their devices so that it faces away from the device’s owner: Apple wants other people to know you’re using one of their products, not constantly bludgeon you with their brand.

However, the iPhone 5S is widely believed to pack a fingerprint sensor underneath the home button. Perhaps this sensor requires a larger “window” to work than the current home button icon could provide?

I’m skeptical, but we’ll see.
