New iPhone 5S rear shell photos reveals redesigned Home button component


French website (via MacRumors) has published photos, which it claims are of an iPhone 5S rear shell.

This is not the first time we’ve seen photos of the iPhone 5S rear shell, however has overlayed the leaked iPhone 5S logic board on the rear shell and as you can see in the photo above, the holes line up perfectly with mount points on the rear shell.

This is interesting as the purported iPhone 5S logic board comes with repositioned screw holes compared to the iPhone 5 logic board. also takes a closer look at the Home button area, which is of interest as it is widely speculated that iPhone 5S will come with fingerprint sensor. The comparison photos reveals the metal spacer shield for the home button has changed from a symmetric design in iPhone 5 to an asymmetric one in iPhone 5S.


The reason for the change is not clear, but one could speculate that fingerprint sensor may have forced the design change.

Apple is widely expected to unveil iPhone 5S at the media event on September 10, and potentially even the budget iPhone 5C.
