Apple 3D Touch Display Improvements: Scalable Technology Coming

Millions of customers who purchased the iPhone 6s or 6s Plus are already looking for the next iPhone 7 rumors and possible specs. Apple could bring scalable 3D Touch technology to the next generation smartphone lineup in 2016.

Can you imaging the improved Apple 3D Touch display in iPhone 7? There are news about possible upgrade however experts think that the scalable technology wouldn’t arrive in 2016. This means that both iPhone 7 and possibly iPad Air 3 would not get the innovative feature.

iPhone 6s 3D Touch Feature

The current Apple 3D Touch display makes iPhone 6s stand out among other smartphones in the market. There are talks about Samsung bringing similar option to its future Galaxy handset next year and this is a sign of a popularity of iDevices across the world.

If Apple can create scalable 3D Touch feature it would be able to bring this option to bigger gadgets such as the iPad and bigger iPhones [here is how to add 3D Touch option to your iPad now]. The current 3D Touch Apple is using in its 6s gadgets couldn’t be scaled to port into the 9.7-inch iPad Air while rumors promise that the future technology would allow the company bringing it to the 12.9-inch devices such as the latest iPad Pro released in December.

We see some iPhone 7 concepts and ideas lately and hear interesting predictions about how this handset could change to attract more customers in a year from now. There are numerous options Apple could follow but the Cupertino giant would never officially unveil the truth about its products until the official presentation right ahead of the public launch date.

Find My Friends iCloud

The new isn’t shocking, of course. Find My Friends Apple launched is just another way to improve the company’s sites and services.

When Is Apple Announcing iPhone 6S and 6S Plus?

There are first news about possible iPhone 6S announcement date. Previously we only saw the leaked images of the next generation Apple smartphone, designer’s ideas implemented on videos and read about specifications and future iOS 9 features. The Cupertino-based company should present both iOS 9 and iPhone 6S / 6S Plus this fall or at least experts believe this should happen.

When is Apple announcing iPhone 6S? This question wasn’t answered before. Analysts all mentioned that this could happen in September or October but no one specified the date. Well, now rumors menion September 18th as the official iPhone 6S announcement date.

iphone-6s-rumors

The news is based on the internal Vodafone email that is believed to leak with the information about possible iPhone 6S release date on September 25th. Apple is usually presented its new devices about a week before the official pre-orders date.

Some other sources [these information comes from Foxconn internal leaks] claim that the announcement could be held on September 11th with the final launch on September 18th. It’s still hard to believe that Apple could unveil its upcoming gadget on the date when the all U.S. citizens will be remembering all the people who were killed in the 9/11 attack.

These dates can give you an idea on when to expect the improved and enhanced ‘fruit’ handset with a lot of new features and possibilities.

If you are planning to resell your old iPhone you better do this now. Experts think that the second market price on used smartphones will get price drop in September due to a big number of selling items and the iPhone 6S release.

The Cupertino giant will most likely choose September 18th rather than 11th to introduce its iPhone 6S [and maybe iPhone 6S Plus] that should get a better camera, improved battery life and many other options to enjoy.
