Force Touch Modules For iPhone 6S  Enter Mass Production

Another day Another leak and this time regarding Force Touch in the next iPhones.

In a new report from Digitimes, Apple’s next iPhone will definitely include Force Touch. Also, the force touch modules are now in mass production for the upcoming iPhones.

Force Touch technology was first introduced in the Apple Watch. It was then followed by the 12-inch MacBook and select MacBook Pro models.

Report suggests that mass production for the Force touch panels for the next-gen iPhones has started. TPK, which is one of the suppliers of the Force Touch modules, started mass producing the parts in July.

Overall, they are estimating Apple’s next iPhone shipments of 36-40 million in the third quarter and 50 million in the fourth. TPK is also anticipating a 50% increase in revenue for the third quarter.

This is due to the use in the iPhone and the massive requirement of the Force Touch Panels. Apple is also expected to ship around 230 million iPhones this year.

We don't know how Force Touch will work with iOS. Some say that the new innovation will permit developers to better understand the pressure territory around a tap or press.

Such technology could make for more accurate touch sensor, helpful for composing and drawing applications. Reports have also indicated that Apple will launch two new iPhones in the fall.

They are supposed to be iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. The new devices would be like the current iPhones when it comes to the design. But, they’re expected to have Force Touch as well as an upgraded Qualcomm LTE chip.

Other specifications include 2 GB RAM, quicker A9 processors, and 12-megapixel back camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera.

They are also rumored to be built using a stronger 7000 Series aluminum casing and rose gold coloring options. Apple is expected to unveil its latest Smartphones in September this year.
