iPhone 5S rumored fingerprint sensor



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. However, it essential to say that Apple is not the first company using  new technologies such as  cardless payments. Fingerprint sensors have been rumored to be used in iPhones since Apple acquired the  mobile security company AuthenTec last year.

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. One of the best features is the "amorphous" atomic structure that differs LiquidMetal from other alloys. Another advantage is a multi-component chemical composition, so that the alloy can be used for whatever purpose. Last but not the least; LiquidMetal can be processed with the same technology as plastics.

It was in 2010 when Apple signed an exclusive agreement with Liquidmetal Technologies to use its technologies in the consumer electronics field. Since then the results of the deal have been expected, but with no success.

Every new iPhone always features its own unique points, completely different from what its predecessors had. In case of iPhone 5S there are quite a few. The rumored fingerprint scanner is followed by another development – a 120FPS slow motion camera. It is believed that iPhone 5S will also boast really cool camera pack, including a dual LED flash and a 13MP sensor.

Currently Apple is designing a new camera feature for iPhone. It is a mode called “Mogul”. The latter will enable iPhone to capture video in a fast and precise way, at a rate of 120 frames-per-second (FPS). Unfortunately, the resolution of the 120 FPS is still unclear.

iOS products are used to being outnumbered by Android, although Apple manages to become a market leader in advertisement sector. According to a recent study, Apple controls 75% of mobile ads market.

The share of Android is diminishing, as Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphones are delivering hardly any impressions.

Ad firm Velti studied the mobile advertising market of Apple and Android, comparing figures of May 2013 to findings from 2012. The share ofCupertinocompany grew by 5%, from 59% to 64%. Whereas Android decreased its presence on the market by 5% to 36%, despite its domination of smartphone shipments.

New iPhone 5S Photos: Dual-LED Flash, 1GB RAM, A7 Chip



New photos allegedly of the iPhone 5S clearly shows it's internal components, a dual-LED flash, and possibly a new A7 chip, reports MacRumors. The site received the photos below as follow up to photos previously posted which showed the interior and rear exterior of the upcoming device.

As seen in one photo, the chip carries an Apple model number of APL0698, suggesting that this is indeed intended to be branded as an A7 chip rather than a modification on the A6 chip found in the iPhone 5. The original A6 chip carried a model number of APL0598, with the A6X found in the fourth-generation iPad carrying an APL5598 model number, demonstrating how Apple varies the first digit for members of a given A-series family and increments the second digit when transitioning to a new family.

Other features noticeable include 1GB of Elpida DRAM, a dual-LED flash, and a main chip identifier of K1A0062. Previous chips had a number that started with N. It's suggested that perhaps this chip was produced by TSMC instead of Samsung.

MacRumors was also able to determine that the device was assembled in December 2012 making it a very early prototype.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 5S this fall.

Take a look at the photos below for more details!

Leaked photo of iPhone Gaming Controller from Logitech



A leaked photo of an upcoming Logitech game controller for the iPhone 5 has been posted online by Kotaku.

Can't tell you who gave it to us or where it was seen, but we can vouch for this image's authenticity. The controller is large enough to fit an iPhone 5. When iOS 7 introduces third-party controller support in the fall we'll see this thing, plus a bunch of others, probably. Apple evidently won't be making its own.
