Apple may differentiate 'iPhone 5S' fingerprint scanning home button with silver ring [u] - Page 2

post #41 of 70
If you don't see Siri on the 5C

It's because on Friday evenings she

Has to think as you drive a whole mile

Only to say "try back in a little while."

In other words, you dreamers, not enough infrastructure!

But only if its meant to be used left handed.

2 sources: this questionable spyshot and Clayton Morris, who claims to have sources that have told him there will be a "silver ring" around the home button.

You're comparing the MacBook display's outer aluminium case edges with this ugly home button ring? They might as well add another tacky ring to the earpiece slit while they're at it. Looks like Apple's marketing dept. didn't just design iOS 7's icons.

True, we haven't seen any pictures of the front for the 'gold' iPhone. But from what I've seen, the antenna band is visible and that was gold. So both will be seen simultaneously. Quelle horreur.

 

(I joke... I'll be first in line for the gold, but unfortunately this year I'll be out of country on the probable day that orders will start.

Guess I'll find out if I've just been caught up in first day excitement for the past 5 years.)

I thought EXACTLY the same thing.  EXACTLY.


Heh heh.  Thanks for the spark of fun

Agreed.  I guess I am appalled by my idea of what it will look like.  

I can't see how it won't break up the "all black" look we've all gotten so used to though.

OK but still we haven't seen it (a crappy leaked photo doesn't count), so we don't know that it will be static or ugly.

I'm waiting until its announces to judge. Could be that the ring is LED and maybe will provide notification or go beyond just fingerprint scanner? I'm going out on a limb and guessing if it is a sliver ring there's a reason for it and its not just a poor aesthetic choice by some designer.

Look at the Apple invitation... The colors could represent the 5C colors and the silver rings interspersed around the drawing might be the 5S mysterious rings.

How stupid do you have to be to believe those images?!

 

If these turn out to be legit, will you show some humility and promise to apologize to everyone you just called stupid? 

 

No, of course not. You never have and never will.

Exactly; of course not. Why we'd believe anything without reason or proof, or to accept something as fact without questioning it first is stupid.

The physical design of the phone itself is pretty old-basically an iPhone 4 of almost 4 years ago.

Other than the 5 and 5S have a totally different taller and much thinner body, (aluminum not glass)  and a 4" screen not a 3.5" screen and a different connector.  No there exactly the same.:rolleyes:

no the animation is on the desktop screen as well.

For those discussing whether or not the iPhone boxes have the iPhones displaying background art on the phones here are my boxes.

 

Clearly you can see the 3G is the only one that did not have a background displayed on the iPhone.

 

Never owned a 3GS so I could not say without looking it up.

Here's a mockup I did for fun using Photoshop, based on a theory that the ring might glow (blue?) when it's activated :

He means will the gold/white iPhone have a silver ring? I suspect yes given the picture of the black/slate iPhone.

Glad to see someone thinking sensibly in here (tallest skil). Also look at the Page Indicators in the image. blatantly fake! They only appear when you have another page of apps...

Ah, iOS 7 apparently does that on its own. Not sure why, since you're completely right about implementation and how it has worked (and should work), but it does. 

 

Anyone using an iOS beta; can you shine light on that?

 

 

I'm starting to think it might be real, if only to showcase the new icons. I think that's pretty stupid, showing off a view of the OS that absolutely no one will ever see, but…
