Alan Rees's insight:

The 5S should be coming out at the end of this month or maybe not until October. This feature will be on all the phones!
François-Xavier Schaeffer's comment, August 16, 2013 2:00 PM
When the iPhone 5S will be released there will be less than a handful of smartphone equipped with fingerprint recognition. Apple won't be the first to include this in it's flagship model, but i'm sure their implementation will have something unique.
François-Xavier Schaeffer's comment, August 17, 2013 5:09 AM
@james: usualy fall is a very strategical moment for Apple announcements. The iPhone 5S and 5C and the other products to come will make the Apple stock climb. In my opinion, it's time to buy.
