Apple's In-Depth Fingerprint Related Patent Describes new Functionality for Security, Gaming, Scrolling & Beyond | Things that will make you happy! | Scoop.it
Our first patent report this morning was titled "Apple Advances their OS X "Quick Look" Feature for iOS iDevices using an Intense Touch Gesture." In this second report, we see Apple extending their thinking from the first patent that we covered.

Apple notes that in some other embodiments, the Home Button could be a virtual button and a specific gesture detected by fingerprint sensor causes activation of the button.  Whether Apple will choose to start with the design above and then evolve the Home Button to becoming a pop-up gaming joystick as Apple revealed in a patent in January is unknown at this time.
