It’s nearly that time of the year, the time where Apple unveils its newest iPhone, and if the past is anything to go by, the iPhone 6S will be 2015’s reveal. We have brainstormed and gone through all the leaked photos and reports, and it all adds up to this guide. Here is your guide to the unannounced iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S Plus:
Under the Hood
Rumours have been flying around that the iPhone 6S will come with a faster Apple A9 processor and 2GB of RAM. This would be great as it will utilise iOS 9 to its full potential. The whole “bendgate” catastrophe of 2014 will also be eliminated in the next iPhone as reports say that the phone will have a stronger internal body, preventing bending of the device, due to pressure.
The iPhone 6S could come with a 12-megapixel camera with 4K recording capabilities, and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. The device could have an enhanced microphone to improve both recording quality, and voice features.
The Touch ID on the iPhone 6S could see a massive improvement, improving on what is already there, but eliminating errors and improving on Apple Pay.
One of the biggest features on the iPhone 6S is said to be the implementation of Force Touch. First introduced on the Apple Watch, Force Touch allows the device to distinguish between a light tap and a harder press of the finger. Apple have included this feature in their 12-inch Retina MacBook, and their 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro.
Rumours have suggested that the new Force Touch will be exclusive to the iPhone 6S Plus, which could be fake as a new feature like that would divide Apple owners and leave them with the only opportunity to use Force Touch by purchasing a larger phone.
Rumours have even gone as far as to suggest that the Force Touch on the new iPhone will be more advanced than the Apple Watch and the MacBook version. It will be able to detect the pressure on a certain area of the screen rather that the entire screen.
Photos have been leaked that suggest the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will remain unchanged in terms of internal layout. Internally the two cables used for the flash, volume buttons and power will become one cable.
The device might feature a smaller NFC chip with built-in secure properties, saving space internally.
A new Qualcomm MDM9635M LTE chip has been added to improve network speeds up to 300mb/s if the rumours prove true. This chip can produce speed twice as fast as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
The internal modifications point to a slight increase in thickness of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, but only by 0.2mm
The device seems to still come in 16, 64, and 128 GB models. This would be disappointing given that the 16GB model is just not enough storage and the 32GB model is still nowhere to be seen
Externally the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus will not change. The front panel, screen, Touch ID, antennae, and external buttons will remain the same and even look the same. There are rumours flying around that the phone will have an extra Rose/Pink Gold option like the option available for the Apple Watch.
Better LTE speeds, polished Touch ID, Force Touch, improved camera, 4K video recording, and the same design with one extra colour option. That is what you could expect when the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are revealed next month, and launched later this year. Force Touch seems to be the biggest feature coming out of this year’s iPhone, and it could be a revolutionary improvement.
