One more leak before today’s Apple event appears to show the iPhone 5S’s Home Button now listed as a “Home Button/Touch ID sensor” in the device’s user guide. The device’s fingerprint scanner will apparently be referred to by Apple as a Touch ID sensor.

The fingerprint scanner was long rumored to be in the iPhone 5S, and recently confirmed by the Wall Street Journal. As was previously reported, it appears that the button lacks the rounded square icon of the past and is surrounded by a gray ring. [via Nowhereelse.fr (translated link)]
