Screen Shot 2015-05-26 at 10.22.03 PMThere’s a lot of hype already building up for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. Here’s a realistic approach to what we can really expect to see in the updated version of the iPhone 6.

Force Touch – This is a definite possibility, especially since the Apple Watch and most MacBooks have this feature now. So, it would only make sense for them to add it onto their big money makers, the iPhone and iPad.

Performance – It will be faster. Realistically? Probably somewhere around twice as fast as the previous model, possibly around 1.6 times the current speed. Also, the camera will be slightly improved. I wouldn’t expect to see a huge jump until the iPhone 7.

Screen size – Some are saying how there will be 4″ model, like the iPhone 5 and 5S. This would not happen. The iPhone 6C (because that’s what it would be called, if it ever exists) will have the iPhone 5S internals, with the body and screen of an iPhone 6, or something similar to it. That’s how the iPhone 5C was, so I can imagine the trend will continue.

iOS 9 – At this point, with iOS 9, it’s anyone’s game. I have no idea.

Overall, you can expect to see a mixture of Apple Watch features and iPhone 6 features coming together. The 6S will be like every S-edition iPhone; just like the last one, but a little bit better. Personally, if you own an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, I wouldn’t upgrade until the 7 comes out, but that’s just me being practical. If you can more than afford to get a new iPhone every year, then why are you even researching the next iPhone? Just buy it, dummy!
