As it was stated at the media event on Tuesday, Apple had increased the battery capacity of the new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c. Due to such improvements, both devices can boast of about 10 hours of talk time on 3G and 10 hours of internet browsing using LTE. As to the standby time, it is now increased to 250 hours.

A few days ago the photo of iPhone 5S packaging was published. The new device is expected to feature a new Home button - with a ring around it. According to rumors, this part is indeed the long-awaited fingerprint sensor.
A 3D artist Martin Hajek has rendered what the coming iPhone might look like if the image of Home button is correct. Martin's high-resolution picture features a LED illumination ring surrounding the Home button. However, no official statements have been made on this component, so we can only guess about its real appearance.

Photos that allegedly show a new iPhone 5S packaging have been released by a Chinese site called C Technology. Whether these photos are legitimate or not is unclear; anyway, they show a standard white box that was used as a packaging for previous iPhone versions.
The photos of the home button of the iPhone 5S show that it includes some new components. Accordng to Nowhereelse, they are most likely to refer to the rumored fingerprint scanner.
The first notable difference of course for the general shape of the map but not really enough to jump to the ceiling. Even more interesting, a mysterious square element placed closer button instantly revives the rumor. Followed by two other components attached to the extension of the map and that all seemed to be resistance.

The part has the identification number 821-2092-01, it seems to have been manufactured on the 29th week of 2013 (mid-July).
However, MacRumors claims that the same part was sold om sw-box as a component of iPhone 5C . So it is not clear what device it belongs to.
