A new report from Bloomberg backs up the rumours we’ve been hearing about Force Touch coming to the iPhone. “People with knowledge of the matter” say production has already started on this year’s handsets.
Bloomberg’s sources say the new pair of phones are going to keep last year’s designs as well as the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch sizes. They might get a little bit thicker but that’s about it as far as looks go.
By the numbers
It’s by no means certain that the new iPhones will have the 6S moniker – Apple could jump up to the iPhone 7 with its naming system, but we are expecting minor upgrades for the 2015 refresh.
Apple usually announces new iPhones in September and we’re expect the same this year. As Bloomberg notes, handset availability will depend on how quickly Apple can churn out the new Force Touch screens.
