Previously this year, reports started to recommend that Apple would launch the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus in an additional color beyond the Space Gray, Silver, and Gold choices that have been offered in the popular iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s.

Because then, there have been conflicting rumors regarding Apple’s color option: some (consisting of the Wall Street Journal) have actually asserted that the new iPhones would be available in “pink,” while some analysts have actually referred to the color as “Rose Gold.” Today, our sources have validated that the new iPhones will in fact come in a color that is clearly Rose Gold in both look and name.

This brand-new Rose Gold color is a copper-like variation on the gold choice originally introduced with the iPhone 5s in 2013. Like the basic gold iPhone, the front glass will certainly be white, unlike the black front discovered on Space Gray models. The new color pairs up with the two gold shades readily available for the Apple Watch, however the Rose Gold on the iPhone will clearly be made from anodized aluminum, instead of the 18-karat gold utilized in the $ 10,000+ Apple Watch Edition.

Besides animated wallpapers on the Lock screen, the addition of Rose Gold will certainly be the only tell-tale indicator that the device is a next-generation design. We have actually also been told that although Apple thought about using a sapphire crystal cover for the iPhone screens, the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus will remain to use ionized glass, which Apple now describes as “Ion-X glass.”

Besides the new casing color, absence of sapphire crystal on the front of the device, and new animated wallpapers, the brand-new iPhones will certainly include a Force Touch display screen, support for recording video in full 4K resolution, a 12-megapixel rear cam, and upgraded front camera with support for flash lighting, a quicker A9 processor with better graphics efficiency, and more efficient cellular chips made by Qualcomm.

Force Touch’s underlying technology will certainly resemble the execution in the brand-new MacBooks and in the Apple Watch, however its functionality will certainly focus more on short-cutting iOS features rather than on working as an extra menu overlay for buttons. With that stated, we are informed that the pressure-sensitive screen may not be called Force Discuss the iPhone, a detail we’ll talk about more in the near future.
