    Touch ID in the back is a major design failure!

    Exactly. The second finger often ends up there anyway. Then home buttons other function could be either on the same location at the back or with some new sidebutton. 

    In fact fingerpeint sensor could be all over back of phone and thus utilizing any of five fingers that is correct, making error rates much much less compared with current model. 

    Also, true tevolutionary would be with wireless audio and charging, thereby scraping all ports and making it 100% waterproof. This must be the target design.

    Although speakers and microphone are still an entry point... Might be possible to isolate from other parts inside though...?
    Second finger? What about the other 4 fingers? How the hell am I going to use other fingers if the Touch ID is in the back? It's a bad design and only come from Android phones: implementation after thought, not Apple!
