Newly leaked photos alleging to be of the retail box for the iPhone 5S show a modified Home button that corroborates rumors describing a ring around the button due to an embedded fingerprint scanner.
In August, 9to5Mac described the button as follows:
Contrary to recent talk, the new Home button’s design will not be noticeably convex. Perhaps the shape has changed, but the tweaked 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.
Fox News’ Clayton Morris has also ‘confirmed’ that the Home button is “it’s an inny (concave) and it’s gonna have a silver ring around it”.
While this is the first alleged look at the Home button from the outside, we’ve already had multiple leaks claiming to show the internal components.
