Prediction: iPhone 6s

iPhone 6s

It’s a little earlier than usual, but I’m calling my predictions for Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6s.

Name. There has been some silliness that Apple would call this iteration of the phone iPhone 7. I don’t see why the Cupertino folks would break tradition, so I say it will be called iPhone 6s.

Force Touch. Yes. It’s on everything else (Watch, Mac, etc.).

Camera. 12 megapixel minimum on back and full HD for the front camera.

Processor and RAM. The processor will be a 64-bit A9 with better performance. The RAM will jump from 1 GB to 2 GB. The additional RAM should really make a performance difference.

Storage. Apple will drop 16 GB and offer 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. Because 16 GB nowadays is dumb.

Design. The 6s and 6s Plus will look just like the iPhone 6 models. The hardware-based Force Touch might require a hair more depth to the phone. And Apple will make the casing from 7000 series aluminium. This will help reduce the bend-gate drama. The Rose Gold color will probably be added to the black, white, and gold colors.

Release date. Even though there are reports that the iPhone 6s is entering early production, I bet the phone will be announced and released in September 2015.

Bonus: I think the new Apple TV will also be released during September. The iPad Pro will be released in October 2015.

I think these are all safe predictions, because (truth be told) Apple is a company that usually plays it safe when it comes to product iterations.
