If everything goes as planned, Apple will be launching the next-generation iPhone models later this year. The next generation iPhone models, which most probably be an incremental update, are expected to be called the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus.
According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple has started producing its upcoming iPhone 6s with the much rumored feature called Force Touch. The outlet, citing the sources familiar with the matter, says that the volume production is expected to ramp up as soon as next month.
Force Touch is a display feature that Apple first introduced in its wearable Apple Watch last year, which offers another level of interactivity with the touch interface. Force Touch enables a devices to sense how hard the users press down on the screen. The technology then made its way into the new 12-inch Retina MacBook followed by the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro.
This is not the first time that a report talks about Force Touch technology for upcoming iPhone models, in fact, it has become one of the most rumored/reported features of iPhone 6s since January of this year. Back in January, for instance, a report claimed that iPhone 6s will include Force Touch as well as a dual-camera setup.
This latest report from Bloomberg also says that Apple is manufacturing two different models of its next-generation iPhone: a 4.7-inch iPhone 6s, and the other with 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus. Unsurprisingly, the upgrade is said to be an incremental revision, and looks of the current iPhone models.
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhones in or around the month of September, as it has in the years past. Considering the launch time frame, it’s not surprising at all that Apple would have already started producing its next iPhones. Other rumored features for iPhone 6s includes improved rear and front facing cameras, and stronger Series 7000 aluminum.
