Although Apple runs a fairly tight ship, it seems that it still cannot prevent information about its upcoming devices from leaking well ahead of their actual announcement.

The latest product to suffer the indignity of having its hardware exposed before it is ready for the limelight is the iPhone 6S, which is set to launch in September and is thought to be a relatively minor upgrade of the current iPhone 6 however the image released by Nowhereelse.fr seems to show force touch like the recent Apple Watch.

The design remains largely identical to the current crop of Apple flagships, meaning that the standard iPhone 6S will feature a 4.7 inch display, while the larger iPhone 6 Plus will stick with the 5.5 inch screen that makes it a true phablet stalwart.

Whether the display technology will remain the same is uncertain, but it seems likely that Apple will stick with the 750×1334 and 1920×1080 resolutions for its next iPhone devices.

Fans will probably start looking ahead, instead, to 2016 at which point the iPhone 7 will arrive and mark the true next step in Apple’s handset journey.
