Here’s Everything We Know About Apple’s Next iPhones
Maybe you’ve heard…
Apple will likely release the next version of its iPhones in late September.
And based on a report from KGI Securities’ analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, there are few rumors that are likely to come true.
First, the new phones will probably look identical to the current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
But the casing could be just slightly thicker (don’t worry, your case should still fit).
But the real changes will be internal.
The most important of which will be the addition of Force Touch.
It’s already used in the Apple Watch’s display.
And it allows users to do things like use their finger to deep press onto the display surface to bring up new menus and options, like searching for an address from the Maps app.
Unsurprisingly, the new iPhones will also be faster than their predecessors.
A new A9 processor will power the devices, which should boost performance and decrease power consumption.
And a new Qualcomm LTE chip will double the phone’s download speed capabilities (at least, theoretically), compared to the iPhone 6. Source: 9to5Mac.
But the real benefit from the Qualcomm chip is its power-saving features, which could keep the new iPhone juiced up longer while it uses LTE signals.
Another feature consumers should really notice is the camera improvements.
The new devices will likely sport a rear-facing 12-megapixel camera sensor, up from the previous 8-megapixel.
And the front camera could go from 1.2-megapixels to 5.
With all of these changes, Apple is gearing up for a very successful iPhone launch.
The Wall Street Journal recently said Apple has asked its manufacturers to produce up to 90 million units between now and the end of the year. Source: WSJ.
And if all of these rumors prove true, then Apple is likely to have another winning iPhone on its hands.
