Although the next generation of the iPhone will almost certainly not be announced until the autumn, rumours about the device are beginning to fly around the web. And it could be that Apple’s upcoming device will feature a few capabilities that have never been seen before.
GForGames reports that sources in Taiwan are claiming the iPhone 6S could have a camera with twin lenses and a built-in optical zoom, along with a sensor which can actually detect pressure being applied to the device.
Apple introduced capacitive touch technology with the original iPhone, meaning that resistive touchscreens were out the window and handsets could respond to the lightest press. But Apple has developed Force Touch technology and implemented it with its new Watch device, with the iPhone 6S the next likely candidate to receive it.
Force Touch can not only tell that you are touching the display, but also how much pressure you are using, allowing for all sorts of clever new interactive features, if properly implemented.
Apple is likely to stick with a 4.7 inch screen for the iPhone 6S, while the iPhone 6S Plus is also probably going to arrive with a 5.5 inch panel, like its predecessor.
