A new alleged schematic shows off Apple's next iPhone with rear fingerprint reader

It was only a few days ago that we got to take a look at a much simpler interpretation of the 10th anniversary iPhone. Now, it appears that a fairly reliable source has gotten their hands on an alleged schematic for the rear portion of the upcoming handset.

In the newly unveiled image, we can see that the rear of the device has the same vertical lineup for the camera, but also has an opening for where the fingerprint reader might reside. If this is to be believed, it will be the first time that Apple will relocate the fingerprint reader. Since its inception, the fingerprint reader has resided in the iconic home button on the front.

Along with the schematic, a render that was created for the YouTube channel, EverythingApplePro gives us a better look at a potential design.

Although we are still several months away from Apple unveiling the next iPhone - this year could be special, if three new iPhones do in fact launch from which consumers can choose. Like previous years, the firm will likely offer its successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but it is also heavily rumored that the aforementioned anniversary edition of the iPhone will make its debut and will be a pricey addition to the lineup.
