Leaked iOS 9 details tease iPhone 6S Force Touch integration

The iPhone 6S is once again rumoured to be getting Force Touch integration, according to a new report.

What’s more, new details have emerged on exactly how Force Touch will be integrated within a number of apps.

According to a report by 9to5mac, sources have confirmed that the next-generation iPhone will look identical to the iPhone 6, albeit with a Force Touch haptic feedback display.

Apple is allegedly keen to use the feature to replace long press-and-hold button interactions on the device.

It’s expected that the Force Touch for iPhone will also offer similar functionality to the Force Touch built into the new MacBooks.

The report claims we’ll see Force Touch used for dropping new pins on maps, as well as pressure-sensitive scrolling on media players.

We’ll also reportedly be able to use it for adding new events into the calendar, and looking up word definitions quickly.

Apple is expected to reveal lots of information about the upcoming iOS 9 at next month’s WWDC, which is due to run from June 8 to 12.

Unfortunately, the article suggests we won’t see any details about Force Touch integration at the event.

The report also suggests we’ll see a number of updates courtesy of iOS 9, including Apple Pay support for Canada, a redesigned Keyboard shift key, and several UX enhancements to iMessage.
