    There hasn't really been any real evidence about having one.
    But if it didn't have one...what do you think will be the klller feature?

    Then people will realize it was supposed to go on the iWatch. Like common sense says.

    Wrong profit, it's a watch, why would you unlock a watch? Makes no sense

    I don't remember having to type a pass code to check the time on a Rolex, that would completely defeat the purpose of having a watch

    ----------

    Apple has been against NFC for some time, this is their alternative, the internals have been leaked with plenty of room for a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button, there will be a fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 5S

    It's an iWatch. It will probably be more than just a watch.

    What's with people and the whole iWatch deal... I mean, a watch is a watch, not a phone.

    Not watch, iWatch. It will probably have Siri, Passbook and other things. It uses biometrics too.

    I understand what it will have, I understand it will be "smart" but what you don't understand, is that you don't need a passcode for a watch that is strapped to your wrist, having a passcode completely defeats the purpose of a watch

    OS7 will be the biggest advance and you will get that while still owning a 5.

    This is just an incremental update folks. Even a finger reader is not going to blow my skirt up!:rolleyes:

    4k super retina screen. 16 core a7 with unlimited ram. exclusive ios8 which will only be released for the iphone 5s. thinner than a credit card and a battery that runs on ethanol.

    If it doesn't have a Finger Print sensor, it will still be the best selling iPhone yet.

    Killer feature? I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say it probably won't have a 'killer feature' if going off Apple's history, it will be a spec bump than anything else.

    if there is no fingerprint scanner, it would be software specific for the 5S hardware. i'm thinking got to do with camera, video, etc.
    faster processor, better battery, etc is a given I think.

    In this case it is much better for the user, because fingerprints are not secure enough.

    Don't worry. He got banned....Third time again with different names :confused:

    FingerPrint sensor will be on the iPhone, if not with the 5S it should be with the 6, also the iPads as well. My humbles opinion..

    That it will be is different to "rumors say". I for one would welcome the addition, but will not loose sleep over it.

    If it is not present, then I'll see what else is offered. However, at any point, I am still going to buy it (assuming incremental upgrade) since my current 4S is on its last days in terms of battery life.

    It probably won't be able to scan your fingerprint.

    Agreed. Maybe some more RAM, a few more megapixels for the camera, faster processor, etc.

    Camera. Didn't Flickr report that iPhone users account for a majority of their uploads?
