iPhone 6s leaked renders reveal a thicker design

Ready for another look at the upcoming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus? A fresh batch of leaked renders courtesy of uSwitchUK and OnLeaks show the device from almost every possible angle to reveal some interesting new details.

The leak comes from a third-party case maker, though it’s allegedly based off schematics sourced straight from Apple. The images appear to confirm that Apple will increase the thickness of its new phones slightly to avoid the bending issues that plagued last year’s model. The iPhone 6s jumps to 7.1mm from 6.9mm on the iPhone 6. Meanwhile, the iPhone 6s Plus could be 7.3mm thick, up from 7.1mm.

As a result Apple may be able to ditch that ugly camera hump, though perhaps only on the iPhone 6s. The renders show that same bump still protruding from the back of the iPhone 6s Plus, though it’s unclear why that would be the case. Perhaps Cupertino is planning a special camera upgrade just for the larger handset?

Otherwise, both the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus look pretty much the same as their predecessors. Under the hood Apple is expected to pack in a new processor and some upgraded connectors, but overall this likely won’t be a huge upgrade year for the iPhone series.

The biggest change we’re expecting for the new models is the addition of a Force Touch screen, similar to the Apple Watch. There’s no way to confirm that based on these renders, but a recent report suggests production has already kicked off on the new display modules. If that’s the case it may not be too long before the first physical evidence starts to leak out.
