The supply chains started shipping Force Touch modules in small amounts for the new iPhone in June, and began ramping up the shipments in July, the sources said. TPK recently noted it was heading into mass production for Force Touch technology in July, although it did not specify which customer the supply would go to. The company added its revenues are expected to increase 50% on quarter in the third quarter.
Supply chain sources estimate that shipments of the next generation iPhone will reach 36-40 million in Q3 and 50 million in Q4.
The iPhone 6s is said to be slightly thicker to accommodate the new Force Touch feature for the display but otherwise look very similar to the current device. Other predictions for the iPhone 6s include a new NFC chip, a faster LTE chip, a Rose Gold color option, 7000 series aluminum, 12MP Camera, 4K Video Recording, 240fps Slow-Mo, and more.
