The next iPhone could feature Apple’s Force Touch functionality.
As the months come close to September, which is the scheduled announcement of the next iPhone, rumors have started circulating the interwebs as to what the next version’s features might offer.
The next iPhone, which might follow the iPhone 6S naming convention, will probably have the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes along with a faster processor – which could undoubtedly be named the A9. RAM is another factor, as the next iPhone could finally have 2 GB of RAM just like the one found on the iPad Air 2. Generally, the current iPhones do well with 1 GB of RAM, but it wouldn’t hurt to add an extra more.
Additionally, the new iPhone could also implement the same Force Touch functionality found on the recently released MacBooks and the Apple Watch. With Force Touch, a special layer is added on the screen that will let it detect how much pressure you are putting on the screen. This in turn can add additional functions much like how the Force Trackpad work on the new MacBook.
The next iPhone is likely to be announced on September along with a full release a few weeks later.
