Apple’s new iPhone 6S smartphones will launch on Wednesday, September 9 in San Francisco. Here’s a look at what the new iPhones from Apple will offer and everything else that is expected from the event, according to the rumour mills.
3D Force Touch
A 9to5Mac report says that the Force Touch on the iPhone 6S will be called “3D Touch Display” as it can differentiate between three levels of pressure; “tap, press, and a deeper press.” The Force Touch on the new iPhone 6S will thus be the next-gen version of what Apple has already shown on their Apple Watch. iPhone 6S will finally see a 12 mp camera and will also support 4K resolution. The new iPhones will continue with the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen size like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, according to an earlier Bloomberg report.
Reports from 9to5Mac and notes shared by analysts say that the iPhone 6S camera will finally get an upgrade from 8 megapixels to a 12 megapixels camera. Also the iPhone 6S will support 4K recording resolution and the front camera will get bumped up to 5 megapixels for better selfies.
According to 9to5Mac, “an upgraded image signal processor that comes as part of the new A9 system-on-a-chip will ensure that the new sensor will not wash out or otherwise decrease the quality of photos.” The report adds that front-facing panorama shots and slow motion video in 720P will also be supported by the FaceTime camera.
According to a report on Forbes, quoting KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPhone 6S, which has colours similar to the Apple Watch, will come in a rose gold colour and Apple will use a new “grade of aluminium,” presumably to avoid any repeat of #bendgate from 2014.
Faster LTE and 2GB RAM
Reports have also pegged that the new iPhone 6S will finally see Apple ditch the 1GB RAM and offer 2GB RAM. This will be hard to confirm as Apple never reveals the RAM at the launch event and more importantly the 2GB rumours/wishlist has been around for some time.
Also Apple iPhone 6S will come with a “new Qualcomm-made LTE chip” which can deliver twice the LTE speeds of the current iPhones, said a report on 9to5Mac.
Apple TV, iPad Pro and more
Apple is not only expected to launch the iPhone 6S devices, but also the new Apple TV product.
According to a New York Times report Apple’s TV will start at $150, more power for better graphics, a remote that will also be the controller and a new app store for the Apple TV. Read more from here.

Anger At Cynical iOS 8.4.1 Update
The latest release of iOS 8.4.1 addressed a number of issues around Apple Music, and while Apple has been quick to try to fix the issues around the streaming subscription service, other long-standing issues remain unresolved to the chagrin of many users.
“Frustratingly Apple has also still not fixed the infamous WiFried bug, which has plagued users since the release of iOS 8 in September 2014. Apple has acknowledged the issue since iOS 8.3, but a full fix (switching the troubled DiscoveryD process back to mDNSResponder used in previous iOS generations) will not take place until iOS 9 and the launch of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus.
Similarly Apple has already confirmed the crippled Home Sharing implementation introduced in iOS 8.4 won’t be addressed until iOS 9.”
Beyond Apple Music, does iOS 8.4.1 have any redeeming features? Not if you are jail breaking your iPhone, no…
