Apple Music was released last week (which was awesome), but if you’re not into music… this one’s for you. The next big Apple release – The new iPhone. Here’s a roundup of what we can expect.
Size: We can most likely expect 2, possibly 3 models of iPhone released this year. We’re looking at an iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and the possibility of an iPhone 6C. These will be an update to the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and iPhone 5C respectively. Think: 4.7 inch, 5.5 inch, and a more affordable plastic 4 inch phone.
Camera: Apparently we can expect the back camera pixels to go from 8 to 12 megapixels, which would be the first improvement of that kind since the 4S came out in 2011.
Color: A new Rose Gold tint for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
Force-Touch: The new tech that was rolled out with the Apple Watch will spread across Apple devices because of it’s multi layered functionality. The feature recognizes the difference in press pressure. Expect it on the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
Home Button: As we’ve talked about previously, there is the likelihood that in an upcoming model update the new iPhones won’t have the Home button. Some techies are adamant that this will relate to this update, but we’re not so sure.
Hardware design: There are rumors circulating that Apple will use the same 7000 series aluminum seen on the Apple watch, which is about 60% stronger than standard.
Release date: Expect the new iPhones in the Fall.
