The iPhone 6S is undoubtedly going to be a great phone. We have heard from multiple sources that Apple knows the “S” line has become less than groundbreaking in the eyes of consumers. Apple is responding by introducing radically new concepts and features to the iPhone 6S in effort to bring the excitement back into phone upgrades.
We are continuously learning new information regarding the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, while simultaneously updating the site as soon as possible. This creates a large abundance of iPhone 6S rumor articles, which can be time consuming to search for and read through.
You’re probably thinking “wouldn’t it be nice if someone compiled all of the iPhone 6S rumors into one article?” Well, we read your mind. Find below, everything you need to know about the iPhone 6S.
Force Touch is the technology developed by Apple for the Apple Watch and MacBook Pro line, which can sense how hard a user is pressing on the screen. Sounds, interesting, but Apple claims it will revolutionize the way we use our devices.
Information on how the Force Touch technology will actually be used in the iPhone 6S was leaked. The source claims, for example, a deep press can skip existing lists of options and/or button presses, acting as a shortcut for certain actions.
In the Maps app, users can deep press on a destination to immediately begin navigation there, skipping several steps in the process. A deep press can also be used to bring up a contextually-specific menu – in the Music app, deep pressing a song will bring up a menu allowing the user to add the song to a playlist or save it for listening offline. Deep pressing an app can bring up a contextual menu, as well – deep pressing the phone icon on the home screen, for example, will allow the user to head directly to the Voicemail tab. The Force Touch feature on the phone will mimic some of its uses in Apple’s latest MacBooks, as well – deep pressing a link in Safari will bring up a preview of that page, etc.
Rumors speculate that the device will drop the 16 GB entry-level storage capacity. It is highly possible, and anticipated, that Apple will instead introduce a 32 GB memory module to the iPhone 6S. Allegedly, there are no indications of a 16 GB iPhone 6S within Apple’s production facility, Foxconn. Rumors state that only 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB versions of the iPhone 6S will be available for purchase. This move would double the base-model storage capacity of Apple’s newest flagship device making the iPhone more capable than ever.
