A series of leaked photos of doubtful reputation, show the iPhone 5S with a redesigned home button. Whether the transformation is for real is yet to be seen at the actual unveiling date.
According to visual data on a Chinese website CTechCn, whose veracity cannot be proven, the iPhone 5S has a redesigned home button which is covered with a new silver ring. The button had been altered to accommodate a fingerprint sensor. However, the problem arises when we try to confirm whether the images are genuine or fake. It could all be a hoax in this age of digitally altered visual facsimiles. Apple meanwhile is to unveil its iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C soon. Then will come the time to separate the men from the boys as far as this rumor is concerned. It is often said that “To see is to believe!” and there the matter ends. But today that rule holds no more.
This is not a new phenomenon. Many times before leaks of images and snippets of news have proven that the previews and spoiler alerts lend a greater sense of suspense to the process. Before the object of desire enters the market, a few odd peeks into its prominent features will whet the appetite for the technological gadget. Then when it finally arrives on the shelves of the high tech stores, it will sell like hotcakes. Technology is always a passionate pursuit and the tech savvy crowd is always happy to go after the latest gizmos.
