    [Maybe] The FP sensor will also have touch sensitive controls

    meaning it can act as an virtual joystick. Or even to browse with it without needing to touch the screen. You will all see apple saying. Oh...one more thing. This Sensor will act as a mouse and also have LED notification indicator as well.

    : If I am right...will I get a cookie?

    Source?

    Even a rumor source?

    How can you say that with any certainty?

    Regardless, your idea seems a bit much in as far as being a mouse as well. I could buy the idea of it acting as an LED notification indicator though.

    It's only a bet. It will be the biggest feature for the 5S and the rest will be the better camera.

    How will it act as a mouse, with no on screen cursor?

    Does the LED notification ring pulse like the lights on older iMacs and portable?

    If it's a bet, then your thread title is misleading.

    Previous devices with an Authentec FP scanner have included these features.

    ----------

    From what I've seen, you're right about everything but the LED. The joystick would be a useless feature IMHO so maybe not it.

    It's a feature of the Authentec "smart sensor" that Apple acquired.

    Apple wouldn't spend $340 million to acquire AuthenTec, plus tens of millions more to add the functionality to their phones, if they didn't have a plan to make this feature/function work in a compelling way.
