Leaked image hints at more embedded Touch ID sensors in Apple devices

 

Apple’s iPad mini 3 could be the next idevice to sport a fingerprint sensor, based on a new leaked image.

A photo originally posted by AppleClub.tw appears to show the iPhone 6, an iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3, and they all seem to include the company’s biometric Touch ID fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button.

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, Apple recently opened up its Touch ID API for developers. Following that development, it’s not completely unrealistic to think that Apple would include the Touch ID sensor in more of its devices.

It should be noted that the authenticity and exact origin of this new leak has not been independently verified by BiometricUpdate.com.

The devices in this most recent leaked image look similar to another purported leak of the company’s rumored “iPad 5.”
