A series of fresh iPhone 6S leaks has lent more heft to reports that Apple will include its Force Touch tech in the next generation of iPhones.
Display-part leaks, which have been coming thick and fast in recent weeks, indicate that the Cali company is almost certainly bringing Force Touch over from the Apple Watch and updated MacBook to the iPhone 6S.
A new rectangular chip visible on today's images of leaked internal parts is said to relate to the use of Force Touch.
The reports also indicate that the device’s display is significantly thicker than last year's iPhone 6, adding an extra 0.2mm to the device so there's more room to incorporate Force Touch tech.
Force Touch allows Apple’s touchscreen to register pressure as well as swipes. This has led to speculation that Apple will cut down on the number of taps needed to access particular features, such as directions within Maps.
Apple is set to reveal its new iPhones at a special event in San Francisco on September 9th, Gossip suggests the new phones will go on sale on September 18th.
