Ten Fascinating Revelations from the Latest iPhone 6S Leak
Force Touch, already unveiled on Apple's new 13-inch MacBook Pro and the Apple Watch, is a haptic technology that allows for the detection of the force of a tap and correspondingly responds uniquely to the variances in the applied pressure. But what benefit does the inclusion of such technology in the new iPhones really provide for their users? It's actually pretty exciting. Because Force sensors allow for the detection of variances in the intensity of pressure applied, a hard press could enable particular capabilities, such as displaying the definition of a word or showing the preview of a file.
#9. Rose gold will be available as an additional casing color
Currently, the iPhone is available in silver, gold, and space grey. But if Kuo's prediction holds true, the iPhone 6S will be available in a fourth color: rose gold. Unfortunately for Apple, the announcement of the possible new color has been met with some skepticism. The Chinese market, identified as the iPhone's biggest growing one, is said to be cool to the idea of a rose gold iPhone due to the "tacky" and "old-fashioned" vibe it would give off.
#8. The main camera will be upgraded to 12 megapixels
The role that megapixels play in determining a cellphone camera's ability to take high-quality photos is a contentious one. In truth, despite the fact that the iPhone cameras' megapixel counts have consistently lagged behind those of their competitors, several rankings consistently place the iPhone on top in terms of the quality of the photos that it can produce. More specifically, the iPhone 5's and 6's 8-megapixel iSight cameras would be upgraded to a 12-megapixel version in the newest incarnation. That could, depending on other factors, mean that significantly higher-quality photos could be taken with the iPhone 6S.
#7. Voice clarity will be enhanced by a new microphone near the speaker
Even the iPhone 5 already has three microphones: a front mic, a rear mic, and a bottom mic, which is near the speaker. So it's not very clear what Kuo means when he predicts that a new microphone near the speaker will enhance voice quality. In any case, Kuo predicts that iPhone 6S users will enjoy the superior microphone performance of their new gadgets, and in this regard, that's probably all that really matters to iPhone users.
#6. There will be a new A9 processor with 2GB LPDDR4 of RAM
While the chipset of the iPhone 6 was an already impressive A8 processor with 1 GB of RAM, Kuo predicts that the iPhone 6S will be even better with its new A9 processor with 2 GB of RAM, doubling the RAM of the most recent edition of the iPhone. Furthermore, previous increases in the RAM of the iPhone have traditionally been partnered with better app functionality, so if the iPhone's RAM will, as predicted by Kuo, truly be doubled with the arrival of the iPhone 6S, the outcome is certainly worth looking forward to.
#5. Gesture control will be supported
With the introduction of iOS 7, it became possible for iPhone users, using select head movements, to operate a few functions, including controlling the device's volume and activating Siri, among others. It must be said, however, that Samsung seemed to have always held the lead in the gesture-control race with its eye-tracking, facial recognition, and air-gesture features. However, With Kuo announcing that gesture control will be supported on the iPhone 6S, it seems likely that Apple will try to close the gap.
#4. A new design will address bending issues
Remember the "bendgate" controversy surrounding the iPhone 6 Plus? Well, if Kuo is to be believed, Apple has taken note of it and will build the iPhone 6S to be more physically resistant to bending even when carried tightly within a user's pocket. More specifically, Kuo points to "different casing materials" and "internal mechanical design changes" that will make the iPhone more durable.
#3. A limited number of iPhone 6S Plus models could feature a sapphire cover
In November of 2013, Apple was reported to have signed a $578 million contract with GT Advanced Technology for a supply of advanced sapphire material. That deal resulted in the tech world buzzing about how Apple was likely to use sapphire for the screens of the iPhone 6 or the iPhone 6 Plus. However, the problem with sapphire is that while it is more scratch-resistant, it is also much more prone to shattering. That's probably the reason why Kuo mentioned that a sapphire cover will only be used in the limited edition iPhone 6S Plus if drop test issues can be resolved.
#2. Touch ID will be further improved to promote Apple Pay
One of the most important new features of the iPhone 5S was Touch ID, which allowed the home button to serve as a fingerprint scanner. Additionally, iPhone users have complained that the current fingerprint sensors occasionally fail to recognize their fingerprints. Well, if Kuo turns out to be right, Apple will improve its Touch ID technology with the release of the iPhone 6S such that consumers who use it for Apple Pay can experience faster and more secure readings and transactions.
#1. The sizes of the iPhone 6 displays will be retained, with no 4-inch display model being issued
Devotees of the 4-inch iPhone display are likely to be devastated. Similar to their predecessors, the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus are predicted to possess displays measuring 4.7 and 5.5 inches, respectively. Sales of the iPhone 6 and its Plus version have allowed the first quarter of 2015 to be Apple's most profitable ever, the company even displacing Xiaomi as the #1 smartphone company in China. Besides, it was obviously the larger iPhone displays that allowed Apple to steal a substantial portion of the large-phone market. So, no, it's certainly not looking too good for 4-inch iPhone display loyalists.
