Several reports on the next successor to iPhone 6 & iPhone 6 Plus has been released online. The reports claimed they have the specifications and release date to the iPhone 6s.
As cited by GSMArena, the next generation of iPhone could feature a 12 MP rear camera, and can shoot 4k videos for up to 240fps. When compared with iPhone 6’s 8 MP camera, it can only shoot for up to 240fps in 1080p.
Not just the rear camera, the front camera is set to undergo an upgrade as well from 1,5 MP to 5 MP. Clearly, this will increase users experience when using FaceTime video and selfie shot.
GSMarena also cited that the iPhone 6s will feature a new 9X35 Gobi modem, which will speed up download process twice as fast. Theoretically, it can reach the download speed of 300 Mbps.
Another rumoured feature on the iPhone 6s is Force Touch technology. Previously featured on the new Macbook and Apple Watch, this feature will let user access several functions on the device in accordance to how much pressure it was put on the screen.
So far it is unclear whether Apple’s new phone will be named iPhone 6s or iPhone 7. However, a report from M.I.C Gadget claimed that it is indeed iPhone 6S and it will be release on 18th September this year.
Based on an information from an insider at Foxconn, Apple’s partner for manufacturing their products, the official keynote presentation for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be held in Friday 11th September.
The speculated release date is somewhat surprising. When Apple announced the iPhone 6 last year, they released it on the same month. Friday 9th September, to be precise and also on a Friday.
What’s interesting is the product announcement date, 11th September or the same day as the 9/11 tragedy. So far Apple haven’t yet to confirm these rumours, but only time will tell whether Apple will announce a new product on the same day as 9/11 tragedy, an important date for all Americans.
