What Does Apple Inc. Have in Store for the iPhone 6S?

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s next-generation iPhone 6s will take features from the Apple Watch, not only adding the Force Touch input mechanism, but also using the custom Series 7000 aluminum for a 60 percent harder casing than the iPhone 6. Information on these elements was given by Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, in research compacted by Macotakara.

The iPhone 6s will be wider and taller by about 0.15 millimeters and thicker by 0.2 millimeters These changes could possibly stem from the Force Touch system predicted to be featured in the new phone.

Apple first stated their intention to place the Force Touch mechanism in the iPhone 6s back in February. In April, Force Touch launched on the Apple Watch and the newest MacBooks, giving customers the ability to press harder on the screen to gain new contextual options.

Kuo stated in April that he predicts Force Touch on the iPhone 6s to be the most important development for the iOS interface. He said Apple will apply Force Touch on the iPhone6s with capacitive technology.

Apple launched the 7000 Series aluminum in the Apple Watch, claiming that it created an alloy that’s 60 percent stronger than aluminum and only one-third the density of stainless steel.

Kuo also suspects the colors on the iPhone 6s will be varied; the present gold model will be closer to yellow gold, and the space gray will be darker.

Finally, Kuo said to reiterate Apple plans of introducing a rose gold iPhone this year. Kuo revealed the information in May, yet it remains uncertain whether Apple will simply introduce a rose gold color, or launch an iPhone composed of actual 18-karat gold.

In 2013, Apple introduced the gold color with the iPhone 5s. Both older and contemporary iPhones, however, have not been made of actual gold, dissimilar to the luxury Apple Watch, made of 18-karat gold starting at $10,000.
