iPhone 6s Leaks
It has been awhile since anybody heard anything about the next Apple iPhone variant and that is very unusual. Many are surprised that the massive leaks took some time to come out in public. In this case, nine months have passed since the iPhone 6 launch for the first major iPhone 6s leak to emerge. Now that it is here, everyone is overwhelmed.

The leak comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a rock solid track record on Apple leaks in recent years. Kuo spoke privately to investors today breaking down 11 key features he understands will make up the key elements of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus when they are launched in September.

Kuo’s leaks are claiming the following:
  1. Force Touch will be the biggest upgraded selling point, but also one of the main bottlenecks of the supply chain. Force Touch can enhance user experience due to more input methods and support of handwritten signatures, which is beneficial for expanding in the commercial market.
  2. Screen will remain at 4.7 and 5.5 inches, with resolution the same as existing models. There will be no new 4-inch model.
  3. There will be an additional casing color, rose gold, matching the rose gold Apple Watch Edition.
  4. The camera will have a pixel upgrade, likely to 12 MP.
  5. One microphone will be added near the speaker to enhance voice quality.
  6. The A9 processor with upgraded 2GB LPDDR4 will be adopted.
  7. The bending issue will be improved by using different casing materials and internal mechanical design changes.
  8. If drop test issues can be resolved, the 5.5-inch model will have a limited number of units with sapphire cover lens.
  9. The recognition rate of Touch ID will be improved further in a bid to promote Apple Pay.
  10. There will be a gesture control support.
  11. It’s expected that mass production will start in mid-to-late August. Total shipments will be 80-90mn in 2015, with a 2:1 ratio of 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models.
There’s a wealth of information here, all of which sounds not only reasonable but logical.

The most obvious reaction after reading the leaks, if this is true, is the disappointment. The biggest talking point for some will be what isn’t there: a 4-inch iPhone 6s. Many have expressed frustration that Apple has not kept the smaller form factor, which many are clamoring for. Sadly it looks like a watered down iPhone 6c is the best everyone can hope for.
