It looks like the iPhone 6s is actually going to be a game-changer

July 31st, 2015 at 12:00 PM
iPhone 6s Plus Force Touch Display

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are both expected to come with support for Force Touch gestures, a brand new way of interacting with a device that was first seen in the Apple Watch, Retina MacBook and select MacBook Pro models. After Bloomberg said recently that both 2015 iPhones will get the new feature, a new report from Taiwan indicates that the components needed for this great new tech are already in mass production.

According to sources from the supply chain that spoke to Digitimes, Force Touch panels are already being churned out in Eastern factories, with suppliers ramping up production now.

The new gesture, applying increased pressure when tapping on the screen, is specifically designed for iOS power users, allowing them to access certain settings and options faster than before.

Apple did not reveal any Force Touch integration for the iPhone when unveiling iOS 9 in June.

Apple is expected to make 36 to 40 million iPhone 6s units in the third quarter of the year and 50 million units in the Christmas quarter. The company is expected to ship some 230 million total iPhones this year.

Suppliers reportedly began shipping Force Touch modules in limited numbers in June, increasing shipments in July. TPK is one of the companies that’s making Force Touch modules for Apple, Digitimes says, and the company also started production this month.
