iPhone 6S ‘reveal’ shows identical design, no dual lens camera

The Apple iPhone 6S will stick with tradition by offering nothing in the way of external design tweaks, judging by a reportedly leaked rear casing component.

A 9to5Mac source appears to have provided the site with highly detailed photos of the rear metal casing that’ll be used to construct the 2015 iteration of the world’s most popular gadget.

This ‘proven source’ says the design will be ‘identical’ with the same thickness and width of the iPhone 6. All of the connectors, speakers and microphones appear to be the same too.

If genuine, the component also seems to rule out the rumoured inclusion of a dual-lens camera, as the shell features identical orifices for the camera, microphone and LED flash.

While this year’s ’S’ model looks likely to arrive without any design tweaks, as previous releases have dictated, the possibility of internal changes remains strong.

The same source has provided 9to5Mac with an “in-depth look at the new iPhone’s internals,” which will be released in subsequent days.

Those internal changes look likely to include new Force Touch technology, a la the haptic feedback-enabled trackpad on the new Apple MacBook (2015).

Of course, the iPhone 6S range will be the first to ship with the new iOS 9 operating system and is expected to launch in September.
