Upcoming iPhone 6S to feature Force Touch technology

Popular tech website 9to5mac, known for their accurate Apple-related predictions, have recently revealed that Force Touch, Apple's latest piece of patented technology that debuted with the new MacBook, will be launched along with the iOS 9 operating system and, yes, it will feature in the upcoming iPhone 6S.

The new feature will also feature in Apple's HomeKit accessories apart from all future devices running on iOS 9.

"Sources confirm that the next-generation iPhone will look like an iPhone 6 but will include a Force Touch display with haptic feedback as one of its marquee feature additions. To go with the new hardware, Apple has designed iOS 9 to be Force Touch-ready and is working to let developers integrate Force Touch into App Store apps," said 9to5mac.

Force Touch will ensure users will be able to perform pressure-sensitive scrolling through the homne button that will perform similar to the trackpad in the MacBook.

As per the 9to5mac, "Force Touch will be integrated into Maps to drop new pins, into media players for pressure-sensitive scrolling, into the Calendar for adding new events, and across the system for quickly looking up word definitions."

Apple is believed to be preparing for the iOS 9 launch at its next Worldwide Developer Conference in June, and Force Touch is something that the Cupertino giant will be eager to unveil for future devices.

Apart from Force Touch, the iOS 9 may also be unveiled with a revamped version of Beats music, the new Apple Maps service, updates in Apple Pay and a new security system named Rootless.
