According to a report, the production of the upcoming Apple iPhone 6S (iPhone 6 shown below) and the Apple iPhone 6S Plus with Force Touch, which was first featured on the Apple Watch, has begun.
This new rumour comes to us courtesy of Bloomberg. It reports:
Apple Inc. has started early production of new iPhone models with a feature called Force Touch, which senses how hard users are pressing down on a screen, people with knowledge of the matter said.
Its newest iPhones, in the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch versions as the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices, will have a similar exterior design, the people said. Volume manufacturing is scheduled to ramp up as soon as next month, they said.
While final assembly is expected to be smooth because the design of the new iPhones is similar to the current model, the timing and production volume of Force Touch-enabled phones could be impacted by the supply and yield of the displays, said one of the people.
Of course, since this is anything but official, take this with a pinch of salt.
Apple’s iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus (or whatever they end up being called) are expected in September.
