Fans of the iPhone have apparently been given a sneak peak at the latest model after images of the mobile's packaging was leaked online.

While it may not look all that different from the iPhone5, Apple's latest offering appears to have a thin silver ring around the home button.

The images appear to confirm rumours that the new model has an embedded fingerprint sensor in the home button and will be called the iPhone5S.
 

They were leaked by Chinese site C Technology ahead of the phones' official launch on September 10. 

The high-end handset's sensor is said to be able to identify the owner by his or her fingerprints - making them a lot more secure than at present.

All this faked secrecy and "leaks" of tidbits (most of them, I'm sure, being approved by those in charge) is but restless drumming up of things. It's a wonderful marketing tactic many companies have embraced instead of fighting. As for iPhone itself - any news about Lightning S?

to bypass a fingerprint scanner dont all you have to do is spray the button with someat to make print stand out then use a glove and itll read the old fingerprint?

Meanwhile, apple is getting a patent on that silver ring.


So far, all the rumors of the new phone don't really make it seem worth upgrading from my iphone 5.

and why exactly did you get the 5er in the first place

Look at that subtle off-white coloring.

The tasteful thickness of it.

Oh, my God. It even has a watermark!

The iPhone 5 was the iPhone that made me jump ship to Windows Phone.  This after starting with an iPhone 1, then 3G, then 4.  Each one seemed to have something better than the one I replaced but the 5 really underwhelmed me.

How do you know the plastic isn't one of the new environmentally friendly ones.

We don't (unless there's been a leak).

However, it may not change much (except sales numbers):

 

 

Biodegradable plastics used in packaging, which are made from renewable biomass sources, do not prove to offer an overall ecological advantage. The farming and processing of the plants used in packaging cause more severe acidification of soil and eutrophication of water bodies than the production of common plastic packaging. Moreover, they cause higher levels of particulate emissions. The bioplastic bags now common on the market offer no ecological advantage either. These are the conclusions reached in a study done on behalf of the Federal Environment Agency.

Well if you're going to look at the total environmental impact, the cardboard box suffers the same, as popular as cardboard and paper recycling is, it's actually not that environmentally friendly.
