Apple may be developing the next iPhone as more than just an incremental upgrade.
Likely to be launched in September as per Apple’s usual time frame, the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus (assuming Apple continues with its usual naming convention) will start off by offering a Force Touch feature — which would monitor the area on which the finger touches the screen to decide how much pressure you’re applying.

iPhone 6s 4.7 inch display
iPhone 6s Plus 5.5-inch display
* sapphire covered display
* 6s line-up will be powered by Apple’s A9 chipset
* 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM
* 12MP rear-cameras
* built out of a 60% stronger aluminum (Series 7000 aluminum like the Apple iWatch)
The Force Touch is the No. 1 selling feature predicted by Kuo for the iPhone 6S. Already adopted by the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display and the 12-inch MacBook, this technology makes the trackpad pressure-sensitive, so it responds differently based how you press the surface.
