With the launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in September 2014 Apple, for the first time ever Apple gave us two high-end phones and a real choice for consumers. With all of that success, we’re all interested now in how Apple can follow this up with its next smartphones. Here we’ve rounded up all of the likely rumours about the handset, while we peel back the layers of half-truths and outright nonsense to find out what Apple really has in store for us.
Will the iPhone 6S be the iPhone 7?
This is one rumour that simply refuses to go away: Apple may not have an iPhone 6S, but may instead jump straight to the iPhone 7 instead. The latest rumour on this front comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, and reported by MacRumors, who believes that the inclusion of Force Touch on the new phone is such a big change that Apple will skip straight to iPhone 7.

Apparently, a capacitive Force Touch sensor will be installed under the phone screen’s backlight, and this is enough for Apple to make a complete name change. We really don’t think that this is the case. After all, with the iPhone 5S Apple introduced Touch ID and went 64-bit: these huge changes weren’t enough for the company to jump straight to iPhone 6, and Force Touch isn’t even in that league. We firmly believe that Force Touch will make an appearance (more on that later in this article), but we definitely don’t believe that this alone is enough to make Apple drop a model number.
