The next iPhone may feature force touch, pink color option

The next-generation iPhone 6s, widely expected to be introduced sometime in September, could be coming with Apple's pressure sensitive Force Touch technology and a palette expanded to include — wait for it! — pink.

The The Wall Street Journal reports:

Apple Inc. plans to add sensors to detect how hard a user is pressing on a screen to its next iPhones, incorporating a technology used in its forthcoming MacBook and Apple Watch, according to people familiar with the matter.

Apple isn't changing the size of the displays in the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones and plans to keep the resolution similar, but it may add another color for the aluminum casing of the iPhone, said people familiar with the matter. Currently, Apple offers the iPhone in three colors: silver, gold and space gray. It is testing a new pink option to the lineup, these people said.

Apple has previously demonstrated Force Touch on both the Apple Watch and new MacBook. Apple last introduced a new color, gold, with the iPhone 5s two year ago.

Also expected with the iPhone 5s is the Apple A9 processor, a better camera, more powerful radios, and other enhancements.

Apple typically announces new iPhones at a special event during the first full week of September and ships them during the third week. Would you buy an iPhone 6s in pink if Apple offered it? Let us know!
