iPhone 6s Likely To Arrive Sept. 9

Apple's annual fall event is just a few weeks away, and this year the company has lots of exciting things in store, including the highly anticipated iPhone 6s. The date isn't official yet, but is strongly believed to be arriving after Labor Day.

The most likely date for the event is Sept. 9,according to a report in BuzzFeed News. That happens to be the exact same date Apple picked last year to show off the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Apple hasn't sent invites to the media yet, and it probably won't until a week or two before the event takes place.

What's on deck? Plenty.

First, new iPhones.

Apple will show off the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, updated versions of last year's iPhones. Though the chassis and displays will carry over mostly unchanged, the innards will see a significant bump in capabilities.

The most compelling new feature will be Force Touch displays. Apple revealed Force Touch earlier this year on the Apple Watch and later the MacBook. Force Touch can distinguish between a light tap and a deep press. That sensitivity will add new ways to interact with apps on the iPhone. What will be most interesting about this potential feature is how Apple might allow developers to make use of it.

The new iPhone's camera sensor will be bumped from 8 megapixels to 12 megapixels. Apple will also improve the processor, memory, and LTE speeds. Storage capacities will remain at 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB. The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will come in four colors, including black, silver, gold, and a yet-to-be-revealed hue.
