    Yeah, Apple is really stupid not to exploit this and call it twixOS with the new MarsButton.

    I'm waiting for Tallest Ski to come in here and proclaim we're all morons, as obviously this user guide is fake, because there is no wallpaper present. 

     

    Tallest, I'm curious if you will apologize to the people you mocked and insulted, as there is more and more evidence emerging that the black packaging from a couple days ago may very well have been real.

    Short for "Touch Identification". Sounds cool than fingerprint scanning. Some people get paranoid hearing a fingerprint.

    Just my two cents: maybe the silver ring will be used for scanning biometrics like heartrate, body fat etc?

    I guess safari on Mac books and Apple TV should have exclusive streaming.

    There may be a few users of iOS with iPads, iPhones or iPod touches who are interested too. Want to include them?

    Finger-Pass is a great name for it. And iFinger too!

     

    "Hello User, what seems to be the problem?"

    "Hi Genius, my phone keeps asking me to Finger-Pass myself in to my iPhone"

    "You need to increase the intervals between times when you need to Finger-Pass yourself in to your device"

    "Great, I'll go and wash my finger"

    Dude, you need to relax. A picture of an iPhone with no wallpaper seems sketchy to me as well. Have you seen the leaked pictures of the  "red" or pink 5Cs? I remember the wallpaper on that picture is horribly plain pink, just like how this is plain black. I'd assume that picture was fake because it simply was horrible. 

    You are simply trying to continue something that ended in another threat. Relax and enjoy the Apple show.

    He didn't do so after his endless diatribes about how Apple would never release a smaller iPad, so why would you expect him to do so now?

    If this is a Quick Start guide (which it appears to be), it's understandable that there's no wallpaper. I think that past QuickStart guides have also not had wallpaper.

    Yeah, if it's a quick start guide, it makes sense. But remember these? Oh god. They're horrible. I hope to god these aren't real. The packaging can't have a wallpaper-less iPhone. These may seem real, but I think its fair for people to think they are possible NOT real.

    Yah, all I've really heard so far is the finger print thing and faster.  The finger print thing strikes me mostly as gimmicky.  Mobile phones have gone through the 'PC evolution' in only a few years time.  In the early days new ones were substantial improvements, and now they just kind of do what they do and keep getting a little faster.  That's pretty much where phones are.  The S4 was pretty much a snooze.  Faster with some new gimmicks (hands free is nice for gloves/cold weather- but still pretty much a gimmick).  The Note 3 is pretty similar.  Ditto iPhone 5s unless they come up with something truly new.   zzzzzzZZZZZZZZ

     

    Somebody make a phone that paints my house and washes my car already....

    They're identical to the releases were seeing for the 5S. I'm guessing those will be the packaging and they'll be great in person for the market they're appealing to. My 19 year old niece would flock to that packaging over an eloquent 5S. She also bought a 4 last week because it was free with her upgrade (which I made her take back and wait for this release).
    If you don't like the 5C packing- it's because it isn't marketed to you.

    Even though we've had hardware leaks- we never have software- and we always get great integration. Can't wait to see how this works WITH iOS

    Instead of "Touch ID" how about something a little more imposing sounding ...like "Falangial Authentification and Registration Terminus" ... or F. A. R. T. for short? ... come to think of it, maybe "Touch ID" ain't so bad after all!

    Everything. Tell us what we "know". How much RAM? What processor? How about the cameras? Maybe the size and weight. How about other hardware and software features? What telephony chip is it using?

     

    Now prove you know any of that. We know THAT there will be a new iPhone.

    If you'd shut up for a few seconds, you'd see how stupid a statement that is. User guides have always looked like this. Get over the fact that I don't take every single idiotic rumor as fact and at mere face value.

    Then why have I liked the packaging for every single Apple product since Steve came back except for this one?
