It’s not news at this point that the #iPhone6s will be be revealed on the 9th of September. The company will also take the wraps off the #iPhone6sPlus during the same event. And now, a new leak of the iPhone 6s display panel is confirming what we’ve been hearing about for quite some time now, the existence of Force Touch.
This is a sensor that is found on the recent MacBooks, which essentially judges the pressure of your touch and provides input accordingly. Using this sensor on the iPhones could open up a new window of opportunities for Apple in terms of features. In the image below, you can see how the Force Touch sensor located right above the display panel.
Unfortunately, nothing else is different here compared to the last gen iPhone 6, so it’s possible that Apple won’t make any massive design changes compared to the predecessors. This isn’t exactly a surprise given what we’ve seen in the past. However, Apple introduced the Touch ID fingerprint sensor with the iPhone 5s, while the iPhone 5 didn’t have it. Perhaps the Force Touch sensor here will serve to be a similar upgrade.
