Leaked iPhone 6s photos show two important new features

The iPhone 6s is nearly here and 9to5Mac has posted some new leaked photos that give us a look at two of the device’s key new features: Force Touch and a larger FaceTime camera. Force Touch is the technology that Apple introduced with the Apple Watch that lets users execute different commands on a touch display depending on how hard they press on it. The larger FaceTime camera, meanwhile, is designed to help users take higher quality selfies and will even come with its own flash to make it easier to take selfies in the dark. More →

The next-gen Apple TV could be the most exciting product Apple has released in years

I’ll admit that I haven’t been all that hot about Apple’s two newest products. Let’s start with the Apple Watch: I have never had less interest in an Apple product in my entire life than I have in the Apple Watch.
