Apple’s iPhone 5S launch to be delayed

We all know Apple like to release an “S” version of their phones, with the 4S not being too different from the 4, but how about this? The 5S is to have a fingerprint scanning feature to replace the passcode system, this has been expected since Apple acquired biometrics firm AuthenTec last year. It is said that the new fingerprint scanning feature, which was designed by Apple, is causing problems due to the inability to find a coating material that doesn’t interfere with the fingerprint sensor. The release of the iPhone 5S could be delayed until after June.
