iPhone 5S May Feature Finger Sensor Behind Home Button
With speculation rampant that Apple's 'iPhone 5S' will enter production in March, we're beginning to hear chatter about one of the more significant additions reportedly on tap for the refreshed smartphone.
In a move that would deliver a tremendous security upgrade to the iPhone user experience, Apple may deliver a highly sophisticated fingerprint sensor beneath the iPhone's home button. Given the basic design of the iPhone, this critical security feature would be unique to the smartphone world in its placement on the handset.
According to published reports Wednesday, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities believes 2013 will be the year when Apple finally collects on its acquisition of AuthenTec. Consequently, the iPhone 5S may become the most secure smartphone of its time.
Beyond the inclusion of the fingerprint sensor, possible inclusion of NFC capabilities, and an A7 chip, it isn't clear what other major upgrades might be in store for the iPhone 5S. But as we get closer to March, I'm confident the rumor mill will give us plenty more to consider.

Hmm..well if we've learned from the past then we KNOW it will at least be faster, should have NFC(been waiting for years), A7 chip is natural progression(no brainer)...Im hoping for something else a wow factor. Haven't seen one since Siri and Siri is not much of anything as of yet. I skipped the iPhone 5 and kept my 4S. Can't wait to see what is in store for the 5S..keep us posted!

Wifi problems still when update to 6.0.2. Hope jailbreak come when 6.1 is realized.Don't allow others to tell you What you Can and What you can't Do. Live that's your only option.

I never had wifi problems I've had cellular problems and thought 6.0.1 would fix it but it didn't and then thought 6.0.2 would fix it but no. Hoping 6.1 seals the deal

If we have learned anythign the 5s will have no improvements other than processor and potentially camera.. lets not get into the cycle of thinking they would change their product twice in 2 years

Is there a problem with MMi's commenting system? All I see is comments about poor wifi on iOS 6 on this "iPhone 5S May Feature Finger Sensor Behind Home Button" article.

This is a question that's been on my mind for a while is NFC really THAT wanted?

Sensor or not. I still hope they keep the actual physical button.

I am still using my iPhone 4. I skipped over the 4s, just because ok it had some more performance, and the included siri, My sister had 2 of the 4s and I tried one for a week, didn't really care for it, Plus you know if I wanted siri I could always use some jailbreak tweak, then the iPhone 5 came out, I was then going to buy it.
I liked how it had the 1-gig of ram, new and improved speaker, noise cancellation, and better camera. Then I started to see people complaint about the screen/keyboard glitch, the camera issues, and how they hated the apple maps and on top of that no JB. so then I backed off yet again, and I am thinking of backing off of the iPhone 5 and then buying the 5s, yeah my phone is outdated, but hey it WORKS, plus it has a untethered JB!
Anyway I do think, that the finger sensor will be nice, I am always in meetings and with the little ones running around the house grabbing anything and EVERYTHING they can, I would be nice to see there faces when them try to use the 5s and cant play games without daddy's fingerprint..LOL!
but the thing is, will the iPhone still keep in there regular price ranges or will they jack up the prices for more added security?
I don't know but I do know this for sure, I do hope I will see better reasons to upgrade..LOL.
