Earlier today Patently Apple posted a report covering a new fingerprint scanner that could be incorporated into the Home button of future iDevices. This patent application was discovered in Europe yesterday by Patently Apple. A number of lawyers have shown interest in seeing Apple's patent claims and so we've put together this secondary report spelling out Apple's 27 patent claims. Additionally, we've enclosed several new patent figure graphics that were difficult to include in our earlier report. While we're optimistic about this new feature coming to market shortly, you never know what Apple will debut or leave on the table for another day. That's why Apple's iPhone event this week is going to be an exciting one to watch.
