Force Touch has become one of the prominent features Apple is introducing in its latest devices. It has been a major factor in Apple’s first wearable; Apple Watch and also introduced in recent MackBook trackpad. A recent report talks about iOS 9’s readiness for Force Touch and discusses how Apple will be implementing the feature in iPhone 6s.
Information that has been shared by Economic Daily News, suggests that Apple’s initial plan of introducing Force Touch feature only on the iPhone 6s Plus has been shelved, and the company now plans on introducing its pressure sensitive display into smaller iPhone variants such as iPhone 6s as well.
An unnamed supply chain source claims that the fruit company originally planned on keeping Force Touch feature exclusive to the largest display iPhone 6s Plus, perhaps as a mean to market the device, but company apparently changed its plans at some point recently, and ended up deciding in bringing its haptic feedback engine to the iPhone 6s as well.
TPK, a Taiwanese R&D company, is still rumored to be the manufacturer of the Force Touch sensors that’s going to become a part of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6s, which should be unveiled later this year.
If the rumor turns out to be true, and the Force Touch is indeed making its way onto the new iPhones, it would suggest that Apple will be making quite a few changes to its iOS 9 mobile operating system by offering new features and more by making use of haptic feedback engine.
Apple Watch indeed is making a good use of haptic feedback engine, which comes as a part of the device, by offering quite a few features tied to the Force Touch. All this means is more new and advanced features on iPhone 6s which will have Force Touch on a much bigger screen than an Apple Watch.
