Past leaks have pretty much established the fact that Apple is releasing two smartphones – the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in September, with minimal design iterations from the outside. However, the two smartphones are expected to arrive with many new features like ForceTouch tech, a new chipset and a better camera. All these enhancements require internal changes to accommodate new hardware. Earlier, the iPhone 6s rear casing was leaked showing minimal outer design changes but some significant changes internally with respect to mounting points, and now the latest leak by Future Supplier (first spotted by PhoneArena) also speaks the same story about the larger iPhone 6s Plus.

First up, the iPhone 6s Plus shows different mounting points when compared to the iPhone 6 Plus. The report claims that this is done to cram in the Force Touch tech, currently seen on Apple Watch and the new 12-inch Macbook. Even additions like the 12-megapixel sensor and the A9x chipset integration are speculated, but due to the larger frame, the difference is less dramatic as compared to that on the iPhone 6s.

The rear casing image shows off different placement of the speakers screw hole as well. The report also claims that Apple has used much stronger material to build a much stronger iPhone 6s Plus. This is in line with what was previously reported by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who stated that the two flagships are being made with a harder 7000 Series aluminium alloy to avoid the embarrassing Bendgate controversy from cropping up again this year.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are already in production, and reports suggest that Apple is quite bullish about the smartphones. The company has placed its biggest ever order to its manufacturers, between 85 million to 90 million units of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus combined.
