Apple's Force Touch technology is so much more than you think

As I've been saying, Force Touch is the future for Apple, the future for mobile UI's. Apple will incrementally implement Force Touch in all their products. They already have in MacBooks and the Apple Watch. Next up is probably the iPhone and iPad. But we will probably also see it in products like the Magic Touchpad and Mouse too. And all the competitors will try to copy the heavily (thank god) patented technology.

This means that when Force Touch iPhones do appear we should not judge the new UI by its first implementations, but by watching it develop in the coming months (think about Touch ID). Eventually Force Touch will become essential to the way we use mobile devices, and competitors will want a piece of the heavily patented technology. It’s all about creating unique experiences, after all. Et tu, Samsung?

But I don't think we will see a lot of new Force Touch features in iOS 9 and the apps this year though. Personally I believe we will see a heavily remade iOS that is based on watchOS with iOS 10. We will have app icons that we can drag around and zoom in (exactly as we do on the Apple Watch) by using one hand on such a large device as the iPhone 6s plus (and the coming iPhone 7 plus of course). It will be an awesome UI for one handed use. And of course will Force Touch be implemented in the same way as in watchOS too. I really looking forward for the iOS and Force Touch future with all the great new ways app developers can implement Force Touch in the UI that will make things easier and faster to do things. And it will definitely make complicated app UI's simpler.

I believe Force Touch is one of the most important technologies since the touch screen.

Could this smaller 1715 mAh battery be for the iPhone 6s or is it for the mythical iPhone 6c?

The French website Nowhereelse always get great Apple leaks. They recently got their hands on an iPhone battery that looks identical to the iPhone 6 battery, but with one strange difference though: the capacity is lower than before.. It only has 1715 mAh capacity and not 1810 mAh as the battery in the iPhone 6.

The battery's 1715 mAh capacity is lower than the 1810 mAh capacity of the iPhone 6 battery, indicating Apple would have to have increased power efficiency of the device for the “S” generation in order to achieve the same battery life as its predecessor. Given the consistent overall design of the iPhone 6 and 6s, it is unclear why Apple would reduce the battery capacity at all

So to which iPhone is this battery for? I can't really understand why Apple would put in a battery with lower capacity in the coming iPhone 6s. That doesn't make any sense. The rumor says that it will be even a bit thicker than before to make room for the new Force Touch panel, so that can't be the reason. And if it has tactile feedback for the Force Touch technology, it will need a battery with more capacity and not less. So it's a mystery. Maybe the mythical iPhone 6c lives after all?
