Pictures of what appear to be the first leaked components for the upcoming iPhone 5S have been published by French site Nowhereelse, showing what is claimed to be the Home button and a vibrating motor for the next generation iPhone. Details on the components are scare but the claimed Home button component for the iPhone 5S appears to show a slightly modified construction to that of the iPhone 5.
Interestingly, rumors have suggested that the killer feature for the iPhone 5S could be a biometric fingerprint sensor concealed under the Home button, but given the similarity of the Home button itself shown in these photos, it may not be the case. However, it should be noted that the connectors for the Home button part in the iPhone 5S do look to be a little more complex than those in the iPhone 5, possibly indicating an improvement in functionality, and may yet still mean that a fingerprint sensor could be included in the next generation iPhone. However, the veracity of these pictures is unconfirmed.
The next generation iPhone has been rumored to be launching in Q3 of this year with an upgraded processor and camera, together with a fingerprint sensor for user recognition.
