Apple has recently published a patent which describes that the rumored fingerprint sensor for the iPhone 5S will be built into the  screen. It was suggested before that the sensor would be inserted in the Home button.

iPhone 5S has been long rumored to have a fingerprint sensor, the latter being a distinguishing feature from the previous models. In the new model the fingerprint sensor will be used to  verify purchases and to unlock the device. It will certainly be a breakthrough technology.

LiquidMetal for iPhone 5S



According to BGR's Jonathan S. Geller, Apple is about to announce the iPhone 5S produced with the help of LiquidMetal technology.

LiquidMetal is a breakthrough discovery, which can be compared with the invention of thermoplastics. Only the characteristics of the new alloy are much commercially-viable than those of thermoplastics.
