Techkiddy reposts (via phoneArena.com) some photos originally shared by Sonny Dickson showing alleged parts for Apple's upcoming iPhone 5S. While most of the parts have been seen several times in the past, the new fairly high-quality photos provide a continuing look at the parts, which include the nano-SIM tray and speaker button, as well as flex cables for the home button, charger connector, WiFi component, and speaker.

Home button flex cable

Perhaps most notably, the home button flex cable continues to show no signs of a fingerprint scanner. Evidence surfacing in the iOS 7 Beta 4 code earlier this week showed references to a tutorial instructing iPhone users how to use a fingerprint scanner, apparently located on the device's home button.

The parts that we are happy to pass along to you are said to include the Apple iPhone 5S card holder, the charger connector flex for the device, the front camera flex, the Home button flex, speaker button, vibrator flex, Wi-Fi flex, On-Off flex cable and the Speaker flex.

One complication with part leaks this year is Apple's apparent plans to launch both an iPhone 5S and a new lower-cost plastic iPhone. Suppliers and other sources may in some cases be confusing which parts are from which device.

Earlier this year, French website Nowhereelse also posted photos of alleged iPhone 5S parts, including the home button, vibrator, and volume/mute flex cables, with no apparent evidence of a fingerprint scanner. The iPhone 5S is expected to launch sometime in the fall alongside the heavily rumored low-cost iPhone, potentially named the iPhone 5C.

This doesn't make any sense to me.

Makes perfect sense to me. Going against every traditional ways of launching a product, Apple will silently display and sell the iPhone 5S in store without the customers knowing (since they both look the same). And then the day after, Apple will announce the 5S and indicating that all customers who bought it the day before has the 5S in their hands. Thus cutting down the long waits and drama of getting the iPhone 5S. Genius! :D

I'll be surprised if a fingerprint sensor ends up in the 5S. Not so much because it's there, but because they did such a good job of not leaking parts or giving any real evidence of its existence.
