Leak: A closer look the most important new feature in the iPhone 6s

August 28th, 2015 at 11:10 AM
iPhone 6s Features Force Touch Hardware

The web is buzzing with iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6c leaks, and there are less than two weeks to go until Apple launches its 2015 iPhones. A new image leak gives us an even better look at a unique iPhone 6s feature and the hardware required to support it.

MUST READ: A new revelation from that leaked iPhone 6s box (no, it’s not good news)

Called Force Touch, and already available on Apple Watch and select MacBook models, the feature lets users initiate different actions on the display (or touchpad) by modifying the pressure applied on the screen. To trigger Force Touch menus, the display of the iPhone 6s needs specialized hardware components attached to the screen.

Apple news site MacRumors has received more images detailing the presumed iPhone 6s screen assembly complete with Force Touch components, which seem to be in line with previous display leaks. The extra display layer contains a chip that we haven’t seen before in any iPhone, as you’ll see in the pictures below.

The additional Force Touch components seem to add extra thickness and weight to the iPhone. A recent iPhone 6s accessory leak suggested the iPhone 6s might be 0.2mm thicker than the iPhone 6, and MacRumors‘ report suggests the additional Force Touch display parts might be to blame for the increase in thickness.

The blog also says the iPhone 6s display assembly is heavier than the iPhone 6 by almost 2g – 51.2g vs. 49.4g. But the iPhone 6s might end up having the same weight after all, as the metal housing might be 2g lighter than the iPhone 6 shell.
