Apple reportedly planning Force Touch for 2015 ‘iPhone 6s’ lineup

Well known Apple blogger, John Gruber had claimed, that the next generation iPhones, unofficially dubbed iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, will come with the biggest camera jump ever.

The Apple rumor publication, citing its own sources, says the next-generation handsets are internally codenamed “N71″ for the 4.7-inch model and “N66″ for the 5.5-inch version. They’re said to keep the “iPhone 6s” naming convention like the iPhone 5s, and like with every “S” model release, will retain the same design as the previous version.

The Force Touch technology is featured on the Apple Watch due to launch in April, shown by Apple as a handy feature that relies on a bunch of tiny electrodes around the Watch’s display that recognize the difference between a tap and a press, thereby providing the user with quick access to contextually specific controls.

If Apple were to implement Force Touch on the iPhone 6s line, it would need to rework the iOS user interface and introduce new tools so that developers could define custom options for when the screen is pressed. Typically “S” model releases are accompanied with big software changes.

According to some reports, the next iPhone will feature an 8-megapixel camera yet again. Apple switched to an 8MP resolution sensor with the iPhone 4s in 2011 and has since stuck to that resolution, though it increased the individual pixel size and has used newer generation sensors since then to improve image quality in future versions of the iPhone.

Furthermore, the publication says Apple has ditched plans for a dual-camera system on the next-generation handset like rumors have suggested.
