It has just been a few months to the release of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but the rumours about the next generation iPhone is already out. The 2015 line of iPhones which are expected to launch this fall will carry the Force Touch input feature that is found on the Apple Watch.
Company’s internal sources reveal that the next-generation handsets have been codenamed as “N66″ for the 5.5-inch version and “N71″ for the 4.7-inch model. It is also not clear what will Apple call its 2015 model, but is expected to stick to its conventional ‘S’ naming scheme just like the iPhone 5s and others released before. iPhone 6 will also retain the same design as its previous version. See iOS 9 Details and other stuff as well.
The Force Touch technology introduced as a feature on the Apple Watch is handy and depends on a bunch of tiny electrodes around the Watch’s display as well as recognizes difference between a press and a tap. Hence, this will provide the users with quick and easy access to contextually specific controls.
If Apple plans on implementing the Force Touch feature in iPhone 6S, it will have to rework the iOS user interface as well as introduce new tools so that developers can define custom options for when the screen is pressed. This implies that “iPhone 6S” model is subject to big software changes before the release with a new Pink color option as well.
Another internal source who has proven to be extremely knowledgeable regarding Apple’s forward-looking plans, told that the company had thoughts about putting the Force Touch in the iPhone 6 last year, but due to “calibration” issues the feature was pulled out from the device during its development cycle.
Furthermore, there were rumours that iPhone 6 could bring Apple’s biggest camera jump ever by introducing a dual-camera system on the next-generation handset that would give away DSLR quality images. However, it is expected that Apple may continue to use the same 8-megapixel sensor found in other iPhones.
