While the buzz around the recently-launched MacBook and Apple Watch slowly subside, the rumor mills are now turning their attention to the next iPhones. The Wall Street Journal claims that Apple is bringing Force Touch technology, it first introduced on the Watch last year, to the forthcoming iPhone 6S.

This isn t the first time there have been rumors about the forthcoming iPhones featuring improved pressure sensors under the display. Force Touch, essentially includes electrodes deployed around the display to detect the level of pressure applied. So it can differentiate between short taps and long presses. On the Apple Watch, Force Touch adds an extra layer of control to existing multi-touch. Also Read - iPad Mini for 2021 to ditch fat bezels, could bring along new Apple Pencil Mini
When the company launched the first iPhone in 2007 with multi-touch, it was only a matter of time before it was brought to the MacBooks. This time around, the process is in reverse as the Force Touch was first introduced on the Apple Watch and the MacBook.
The publication further claims that Apple is testing a pink color variant for the iPhone 6S. The pink color was first introduced on the iPhone 5C, but on the iPhone 6S it is likely to be more sober. The publication however claims that the variant is only being tested and it is too early to say if it will make it to the final product.
The rumor mills have been surprisingly quiet when it comes to leaks about the forthcoming iPhone. But from what we have heard so far, Apple will persist with the same screen sizes for the iPhone 6S, but bump the RAM up to 2GB. Additionally, reports also claim that the new iPhones could come with Apple SIM preinstalled.
