2015-iphone6s

Apple sets ready for iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus which is slated to début this September and as the launch gets closer, more and more rumors and speculations are pouring in as we wait for the Cupertino giant to unveil the handset.  Almost every day, we hear about the iPhone 6s and its bigger sibling the iPhone 6s Plus and the possible features included with the upcoming handsets. Here we compile the most recent news about Apple’s primary handset and the thing we thought about the upcoming handset.

First off, we take a look at the alleged board that the new iPhone 6s will sport.

From the imaged that leaked just a day ago, the upcoming iPhone 6s will include a new Qualcomm modem that supports LTE Cat.6 wireless connectivity with a significant low power consumption. The MDM9635M chip is made on a new 20nm process and is notably smaller, requires little energy to work and has low heat signature. The modem is also know at 9×35 Gobi and supports fast Cat.6 LTE connection. In theory, the chip could reach speeds at 300Mbps downloads and 50Mbps of upload speeds.

With smaller modem, It will give Apple the advantage to utilize the free space inside the board which will open up for additional features which are now being eyed to for a possible inclusion of a Force Touch display or even a larger battery if the space inside would allow.

case maker ITSKINS is now starting to produce compatible cases for the upcoming iPhone 6s and obviously such case manufacturer gets the official dimensions of the handset for their cases to work with the new device. The company has already made out some sketches showing what the next iPhone would look like and how does it compare with the currently iPhone 6 in the market.

As we can see here, just from the image about, the first sketch on top is from the current iPhone 6 while the bottom image shows the upcoming iPhone 6s. Notice the difference in thickness between the two, the iPhone 6s at the bottom is 0.13mm thicker than the iPhone 6 that we have today. Though this isn’t much noticeable on the real world device. It could pose a great deal with Apple as this also gives them the advantage of having a space inside the unit where they can squeeze in other components which will then turn out as a new feature perhaps on the upcoming handset.

Our source has pointed out that the thickness of the new iPhone 6s might have some connections with the rumored Force Touch display which requires a little extra space. The alleged feature is a certain type of touch-sensitive technology which was incorporated with the new Macbook Pro and the new Apple Watch. This new feature if it comes with the new iPhone 6s will bring new gesture features on the iPhone.

Now if the new iPhone 6s brings a new camera sensor, it would finally wave goodbye to the peg which put the 8 Megapixel camera on the iPhone for years. Just to fuel the excitement to iPhone fans, some alleged Foxconn employee just leaked out a certain part of a document  on Weibo that seems to show that the upcoming handset that they are building would include a 12 Megapixel camera. Though the images was then later remove from the account, thanks to our sources who took notice and grabbed a copy before it went offline. As the camera module finally ups the scale, the sensor is said to be able to capture 4K videos and slow-motion video at 240 fps.

Additionally, at the manufacturing level, the iPhone 6s carries an internal model number N66 while the N71 label as seen above points to the larger iPhone 6s Plus. Since these leaks could be included in the final build of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, it’s  also possible that one of these features might not make into the production line. So as far as we are concerned, it would be wise to take this for now as a pinch of salt until Apple make something official.
