Top 4 iPhone 6S rumours

Like with the release of any highly anticipated product, rumours are flying thick and fast about what we can expect from Apple in 2015. Never mind that the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was only released by Apple in November last year, consumers are already speculating on what their latest product, the iPhone 6S, will have in store. 

Here we look at some of the trending commentary around the issue, and what Apple fans can be on the lookout for with the release of the iPhone 6S. 

1.    Release date

Based on the patterns of Apple’s previous iPhone releases, it’s been speculated that we can expect the iPhone 6S to hit the stores around September 2015. To keep up with growing competitions from their rivals, however, Apple may choose to release the smartphone a little earlier, capitalising on the spring rush or to coincide with the release of the latest Apple Watch

2.    Improved camera

Whilst it’s hardly guesswork to assume that the new iPhone 6S would include improved camera capacity, rumour has it that it could in fact represent one of the biggest leaps in smartphone history. This is based on speculation of the use of a two-lens system, enabling users to capture DSLR-quality imagery. This new technology would also allow users to enjoy optical zoom, a major step-up in smartphone camera capacity. 

3.    A gaming joystick

This one may be a little out there, but it actually comes from Apple itself, who recently patented a home button that doubles as a gaming joystick. The new feature would see a spring sitting under the home button, allowing it to pop up and double as a toggle. If the rumours are true, the iPhone 6S could definitely break out from the pack as the preferred smartphone for avid gamers. 

4.    Wireless charging

Anyone who owns an iPhone knows that one of its most frustrating attributes is the short battery life. Rumour has it that the new iPhone 6S will introduce wireless charging, which allows it to re-juice simply by being in close proximity to its charger. In the meantime, keep an eye out for the new reversible USB charger and lightning cables.
