iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s plus will be a tiny bit thicker reports a case maker

A case manufacturer has leaked some sketches that shows that the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s plus will be a tiny bit thicker. And personally I'm sure that's because they will have Force Touch technology that requires some extra space. The strange thing is that the very reliable source Mark Gurman from 9to5Mac earlier this week posted images with parts of a real iPhone 6s that had identical dimensions as the iPhone 6 though.

While the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will look exactly like the current sixth generation, they will be a hair thicker. The iPhone 6s should be 7.0 mm thick, up 0.1mm from the iPhone 6, while the iPhone 6s Plus will be 7.13mm - up just 0.03mm from the 7.1 thick 6 Plus model.

The coming iPhones are rumored to already be in production because of yielding issues thanks to the new displays with support for Force Touch.

A coming iPhone could have sensors like the fingerprint scanner and more in the Apple logo on the back

Having sensors and the fingerprint sensors in the Apple logo and the iPhone word is quite smart. So hopefully this new Apple patent will be a reality.

Titled “Concealed electrical connectors,” Apple's patent application filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office on Thursday details an electrical system that integrates with existing apertures or surface anomalies in a mobile device chassis, a good example being the Apple logo emblazoned on all iPhone and iPad models.

As for sensors, the document mentions biometric monitoring apparatus such as skin conductivity sensors, heart rate monitors and fingerprint readers. More robust implementations may be used for charging and docking mechanisms, including contact solutions like MagSafe. An inductive charging setup like the system introduced with Apple Watch is a possibility, though Apple's patent fails to mention such designs.

And if Apple adds the fingerprint scanner in the Apple logo on the back, then we don't need to have a home button on the front as I did a video about before. It would mean that we can have even bigger screens on the iPhone. A 5-inch on the smaller one, and maybe a 5.9-inch on the bigger one. And sensors on the back together with Force Touch on the front will be awesome, I'm sure of that.
