Apple has released its latest build of iOS 7 that seemingly confirms the fingerprint recognition support for next-generation iPhone. 9to5Mac has posted this Monday, the latest iOS 7 beta 4 code sent by Hamza Sood that clearly reveals that Apple is actually building its new iPhone with a biometric fingerprint sensor. Actually a folder called “BiometricKitUI” gets leaked in this latest iOS 7 build. It shows that this sensor will be placed on new iPhone’s home button.

The text shown in image is posted by Hamza Sood on its twitter account. This text is present in the “BiometricKitUI” that shows the image of a person "holding an iPhone with their right hand while touching the Home button with their thumb." It is already in rumors that fingerprint scanning system for upcoming iPhone's user interface has been already completed. Now this leaked folder and its code points that this fingerprint scanner will be use to unlock the screen. So it is not clear that for what purpose it will be installed, for a rumored payment system or for unlocking system in next iPhone. But it is now confirmed that biometric fingerprint sensor is coming with new iPhone in any way. It is already in reports that Apple will add some biometric features in its iWatch too.

As we all know that the upcoming new iPhone is iPhone 5S, hence it's obvious that fingerprint recognition will come in it. iPhone 5S will also have A7 processor, an enhanced camera functionality and features along with new voice features.
