Apple is likely to launch its iPhone 6s on September 9, during a special event, according to a recent report based on information provided by sources familiar with the matter.
During that event, the company would also roll out its Apple Tv, sources said. The report shows that Apple will move the event in the second week, but not on Tuesday as we were accustomed with, but on Wednesday.
In 2013, the company’s iPhone 5 generation was officially released on a Tuesday. And so were iPhone 6 and 6 Plus and the Apple watch. But the reasons behind changing the date remain largely unknown.
Rumor has it that Apple would also unveil its latest 12.9” iPad, which may be named iPad Pro or something like this, during the same September event. According to previous rumors, the next-gen Apple TV will also be presented at the event.
The new Apple TV is expected to be “drastically improved.” Leaks showed it has a slimmer carcass, a remote with touch-pad input, more storage, and voice recognition features.
Additionally, iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus headsets are expected to bring additional features that make the money spent on them worthwhile. For instance, both models are rumored to run Force Touch technology on their display. This technology, which was first used in the Apple Watch, allows a device to sense just how much pressure a user exerts through a finger tap on the screen.
The device’s software takes into account that extra pressure and triggers a series of extra functions. For example, pressing harder than a simple tap on an Apple Watch’s display summons new controls in apps such as Messages and Music.
The displays of the new iPhone models are rumored to have the same size as those of the latest generation, which is 4.7 inches respectively 5.5 inches. But there are other special features that make them special such as an 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM, for faster loading time, a rear camera with extra 4 megapixels, 1080 front camera, and enhanced modem.
Plus iPhone 6s is expected to have a lighter shell that would prevent the device from bending when worn in a back pocket. Especially men have complained that they managed to bend their iPhones after just a few weeks because they kept the headsets in their back pockets. It is still unclear whether it is an iPhone problem or it is just an iPhone 6-side issue, but Aplle plans to upgrade all devices to prevent such events from happening again.
