Rumored to be in production for a September launch, an image of an iPhone 6s front panel has leaked. The images appear to show the panels sitting out on a factory floor, apparently ready to be attached to the rear shells we saw back in June. Unsurprisingly, the design doesn’t seem any different front the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus already on the market.
In typical Apple fashion, we’re expecting the “S” upgrade to mostly concern the device’s guts, not the physical design. That means consumers should expect the same thin, rounded design of the existing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Otherwise, all the big upgrades will come internally, most notably from the supposed Force Touch technology we’ve been hearing so much about.
Speaking of which, the source who shared the photos apparently couldn’t verify whether or not the next iPhone will include this technology, despite multiple rumors claiming it will. The source also couldn’t verify whether or not the front panel featured sapphire crystal.
In addition to the inclusion of Force Touch, the next iPhone might possibly include an A9 processor, 12-megapixel camera, improved Touch ID support, 2GB of RAM, and it might even start at 32GB. With mass production underway, it looks like Apple is well on its way to delivering new devices in just a few months.
