iPhone 6s Leak: New Rose Gold Color Option, Renamed Force Touch Tech


Apple made it official today that it would be holding a special media event on the 9th of September, at which it will be revealing to the world its future plans for the iPhone. But apart from that official tidbit, the leaks regarding the iPhone 6s are coming in hot, with a new report claiming that Apple will introduce a new color option, and will rename Force Touch on its smartphone to something else.

iPhone 6 Plus

A New Color Option To Cater To The Masses. Force Touch Will Be Renamed.

According to a report published by 9to5Mac, the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will be available in a new Rose Gold color option, apart from the usual Space Gray, Silver and Gold which we have long become accustomed to. The new Rose Gold option will be just like the one found on the Apple Watch.

According to the report:

This new Rose Gold color is a copper-like variation on the gold option originally introduced with the iPhone 5s in 2013. Like the standard gold iPhone, the front glass will be white, unlike the black front found on Space Gray models.

The report further says that Apple will not be calling Force Touch as 'Force Touch' on the iPhone 6s, and will instead be given a new name. It's somewhat odd why Apple is planning to do so, but there's that.

With that said, we are told that the pressure-sensitive screen may not be called Force Touch on the iPhone, a detail we’ll discuss more in the near future.

Lastly, the report also touches upon the fact that the new iPhone won't have a Sapphire crystal display, something which has been rumored to make the cut onto the device in the past.


With just a couple of weeks to go, pretty much all the details on the iPhone 6s have been leaked. From the camera to the processor which will power the device, all that is left right now is for Apple to take the wraps off the smartphone itself. And judging by the venue the company has chosen to unveil the device, it's likely that it will be a big show, with a lot to be discussed regarding Apple's future plans for its mobile ecosystem.

The event will be live streamed, and you can catch all the details about it here: How To Live Stream September 9th iPhone 6s Event On iOS, Apple TV, Mac, PC.
