New Concept Brings The Purported iPhone 5S Home Button To Life
It's common knowledge that Apple's iPhone 5S could launch with interesting changes in the Home button department. However, one new concept - put together by Martin Hajek - shows how the redesigned button could look. Based on the purported iPhone 5S packaging we told you about on Friday, Hajek's "Lord of the Ring" iPhone 5S concept focuses on anticipated changes made to the seventh-generation handset's Home button. In particular, such changes concern the possibility of a biometric sensor being added to the Home button, which could result in a ring of light surrounding the small, central button, as in the above and below images.
