WSJ: The Next iPhone Will Have A Fingerprint Scanner


The Wall Street Journal backed up several previous reports and rumors that Apple's next iPhone will have a fingerprint sensor.

Apple will announce the new device at a press event Tuesday at 1 p.m. Eastern.

The new iPhone, which the press has dubbed the iPhone 5S, will reportedly look almost exactly like the current iPhone 5. However, it will have improved internal components like a better camera and faster processor.


But it seems like most of the focus will be on the fingerprint sensor, which will likely be embedded in the home button. With a fingerprint sensor, you won't have to manually input a passcode to unlock your iPhone.
