Apple are expected to unveil a new iPhone later this year although at the current time we're not sure whether it'll be the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 5S. Whichever model Apple unveil new rumours suggest that it'll have a fingerprint sensor.
An analyst from KGI Securities has reported that Apple will include new fingerprint technology beneath the home-screen button. Apparently, this will then be used to log users into their Apple account, as well as to unlock the smartphone.
The source of the information is none other than analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who has a solid history of correctly predicting Apple's devices. He is claiming that the inclusion of fingerprint technology is thanks to Apple's recent acquisition of AuthenTec.
What else do we know about Apple's next iPhone ?
Apple have always been the best at keeping details of their devices secret. Consequently, very little information has surfaced about Apple's next iPhone , but we have heard that it'll incorporate new display technology.
Apple have had problems with stock of the iPhone 5 due to issues manufacturing it's touch-screen. The problem apparently relates to the use of "in-cell technology" which Apple will resolve by switching to new "touch-on" display technology in the iPhone 6.
Apparently, Apple's next iPhone will be available in a much wider colour range with pink, yellow, blue, red , green, purple, silver , white and black all expected. The only other information we have is that it'll launch the iOS 7 platform which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.
As soon as 3G get more news on the Apple's next iPhone you'll be the first to know !
