If this report is correct, the iPhone 6s might be the biggest ‘S’ upgrade ever

iPhone 6s vs. iPhone 6 Specs

People often don’t think of Apple’s “S” upgrades as significant upgrades. But that might not be the case with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, a family of handsets that will reportedly bring several huge improvements to the table compared to their predecessors.

At least that’s what a new analyst report suggests, not long after a well-known insider provided similar details about Apple’s yet-to-be-released 2015 iPhones.

Business Insider has obtained a research note from Citi that lists expectations for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. According to the note, analysts expect Apple to improve screen durability and build quality, and to also beef up the specs of the phone as well as the camera.

Citi says that the new iPhone 6s models will have tougher screens than predecessors, suggesting that Gorilla Glass 4 protective displays are more likely for the new handsets than sapphire glass screens. Apple is also rumored to move to 7000 series aluminum for the iPhone 6s to prevent future Bendgate problems – it’s the same metal alloy is currently used for Apple Watch Sport models.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are expected to pack faster A9 processors and 2GB of RAM. This combo might boost speeds by more than 25%, the publication notes. The rear camera is also expected to receive a major bump in resolution, jumping from 8 megapixels in the current models to 12 megapixels for future handsets, just as previous reports have claimed.

Finally, the iPhone 6s handsets are expected to support Force Touch gestures, just like the Apple Watch and new MacBook models.
