The Wall Street Journal seems to have gotten some interesting information about the next generation iPhones. According to the news portal, the next iPhones would come in a brand new colour option, and feature the Force Touch technology found on the Apple Watch, and new MacBook and MacBook Pro.
The Wall Street Journal says that “according to people familiar with the matter”, the next iPhones would be able to detect how hard its display has been pressed using a pressure-sensing technology. Sadly though, the source did not mention how exactly how it would be used – Force Touch on the Apple Watch allows for more input options on its small display, while Force Touch on the MacBook/MacBook Pro’s trackpad activates different actions depending on how hard it’s been pressed. This report is in-line with the last rumour we saw, which also said that the next generation iPhones would have Force Touch on board.

As with previous iPhone announcements, the next generation iPhone will not have any drastic changes in terms of design. Apple is used to sticking to the same design for two years, so the next one should be the same too. However, the source did point out that Apple might be introducing a new pink version though, they might change their mind. For years now Apple has always stuck to the safe colour options for its iPhones (apart from the plastic iPhone 5c of course), so having a pink (metallic?) option would be a good refresh.
The next generation iPhones should be announced later this year, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that our currency would perform better because the increased prices of Apple products (iPhones, MacBooks, and accessories) is not looking good at all.
