The new iPhone set for release in September will have a dual-camera system, pressure sensitive home button, and will remove the headphone jack seen on previous models, according to Mark Gurman of Bloomberg.
The well-connected journalist says Apple will unveil the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus successors in September, ahead of a big iPhone overhaul in 2017.
As rumored, the larger 2016 iPhone Plus will have a dual-camera system capable of taking better photos and brighter photos with more detail.Both sensors, which each capture color differently, simultaneously take a picture, and the device produces a single, merged photograph.The dual system sharpens photos taken in low-light environments. The combination of the merged photos from the two camera sensors also allows users to zoom while retaining more clarity
Both versions of the 2016 iPhone will retain the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch form factor as seen on current models — keeping a similar look. However, Apple will remove the handset’s antenna lines for a cleaner look, the report says.
Further, both models will have a home button that responds to pressure with a vibrating sensation on the finger, rather than a physical home button like on current models. Apple will likely include gestures to get users back to the home screen.
The new models will run iOS 10, the new version of Apple’s mobile operating system coming this fall. The updated software offers interactive widgets to quickly glance at calendar appointments and favorite contacts, new messaging features, a new application for controlling smart home appliances, and a redesigned Apple Music. The new software will also run on current and some past iPhone models.
Apple is keeping quiet on its next iPhone and hasn’t confirmed a launch event for September
