The new tactile feedback linear motor is said to be more intelligent and capable of producing different subtle vibrations that can be made to correlate with app actions. In addition, the motor can emit different vibrations depending on the area of the screen that is being tapped.
The iPhone 5s motor cost around $0.60; however, the new motor is said to cost 2 or times as much.
It’s interesting to note that the fourth generation of haptic feedback technology called “Bulldog” has been demonstrated and announced on June 2013 in the UK. The fourth generation is capable of pressure sensitivity on flat surfaces, and can deliver three levels of feedback depending on how hard the user has pressed the area. However, the Chinese media hasn’t mentioned anything about Bulldog, so we’re unsure if the iPhone 6 will make use of the fourth-gen haptic feedback motors, or if it will develop its own technology.
Apple is reportedly set to release the iPhone 6 in September. It's believed the company will sell a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch version of the device; however, it's unclear if both will launch at the same time.
