iPhone 6s: camera with optical zoom and Force Touch technology
The iPhone 6s could feature a powerful dual-lens camera with optical zoom instead of digital zoom
Some may remember the news last November in which we highlighted that the camera on Apple’s next iPhone could be the biggest leap ever made in the apple phone line. The statements of technology journalist John Gruber assuring that Apple is working “on the evolution of the largest camera ever seen”, coupled with the introduction of a new Sony 21 megapixel sensor and 4K recording, helped fuel those rumors.
Now sources in Apple’s supply chain have just shed new light on the camera that could incorporate the next iPhone 6s, as well as exclusive new technology. Apparently, the new iPhone would incorporate a dual lens camera with optical zoom, nothing to do with the digital zoom present in all versions of the iPhone to date.
The new camera will also be able to capture more light, something that would significantly improve the quality of the image. To give us an idea, the current camera of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has an aperture f / 2.2, so we could find an improvement in this regard. As for the size of the sensor, it is still unknown if Apple will want to continue to maintain the current 8 megapixels or will jump to a larger size.
In another vein, sources have also spoken about the implementation of a 3D pressure sensor which would allow an interaction similar to what Force Touch allows on the Apple Watch. That is, the iPhone screen would be able to differentiate between a simple press and pressure, literally adding a new layer to the user interface.

Finally, the information has also indicated that, although they will continue to maintain the same design as the current iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, storage will start from 32 GB, eliminating the 16 GB of the entry model. The latter seems especially unlikely considering that Apple has eliminated the 32 GB version of the current generation, favoring the jump from 16 to 64 GB.
As reported from iDownloadBlog, it is necessary to note that the media that has echoed this information supposedly from supply chains does not have a proven track record of successes, so it could easily be the many rumors that appear at this time no solid foundation.
