Apple may only add its new Force Touch feature to the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 6s Plus, suggests a UDN report.

Force Touch uses tiny electrodes around the flexible Retina display to distinguish between a light tap and a deep press, and trigger instant access to a range of contextually specific controls.

Sources familiar with TPK, the company responsible for 90% of the Force Touch sensors in the Apple Watch, say that company will record significant profits this year by supplying Apple with sensors for a new 5.5-inch iPhone. The report does not mention the 4.5-inch iPhone 6.

Notably, those sensors are said to cost 2.5x - 3x more than the Apple Watch sensors.

Supply chain, said, iPhone 6S plus import pressure sensor to determine the upcoming shipment of Apple Watch screen size is only 1.5 inches and 1.65 inches, each pressure sensor connected to a single price for 4-5 US dollars. iPhone 6S plus enlarged to 5.5-inch screen size, so that orders the price rose to 13-14 US dollars, to boost the TPK and industry to profitability will be nourishing pill.

Previous rumors had suggested that Apple will be adding Force Touch to both its new iPhones this fall; however, it's possible that the company wants to further distinguish its iPhone Plus as a higher end product. The iPhone 6 Plus already boasts a better camera than the iPhone 6.

From design standpoint, the most innovative and nicest is the Iphone 4. Clearly standing out in design and quality. Not to wonder it was designed and produced under Mr. Jobs watch .... My respects to Mr Jobs ....

Looking at iphone 4, it looks old just seeing one color on it and it smudges to me easily. I find the 5 a bit more of a step up the way antennas are organized to bring out a but more style, even the 5c to me looked better with color.

And the "plus" series are the ugliest of the lot and one of the most uncomfortable ones to use.

Im beginning to hate apple with these dumbass decisions. Why show the "plus" series as premium?....regular ones are premium enough for the price it asks for.
