iPhone 6s concept brings Force Touch rumors to life

The iPhone 6s may not change much visually compared to the current iPhone 6, but it’s expected to get at least one major new feature. Force Touch could change the way we interact with our iPhones, and a new concept video tries to imagine how the technology will work.

Of course, Force Touch is already out there on the Apple Watch and a few new MacBooks, but iOS is an entirely different story. Designer Maximilian Kiener imagines one way the operating system could be improved for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. In his example, a quick Force Touch lets you jump directly from the Control Center to more complex Settings controls.

Kiener’s video only shows this feature for Bluetooth controls, but it could work just as well for Wi-Fi. You might even Force Touch the “Do Not Disturb” button to open up a new menu of options for deciding which types of notifications are worth seeing and which should be muted.

Apple probably has plenty of plans for Force Touch on iOS—assuming the rumors are true. Kiener’s concept seems like an obvious win though, and we hope the Cupertino company has something similar in development.

Check out the short video above if you haven’t already. We’ve also put together a gallery of screenshots below for a closer look at this Force Touch concept.
