  • Apple Reportedly Planning to Integrate Force Touch in Next Generation iPhone


    The Wall Street Journal reports to have inside knowledge of Apple's plans to integrate its new Force Touch technology into the next-generation iPhones that could be announced as early as this year.

    Force Touch is a new technology Apple developed and patented to allow the user to have more control over a device with a touch surface by using forceful taps to tell the machine what the user wants to do (gestures). Apple first enabled this new technology in the Apple Watch and soon followed up with bringing it to its new 2015 MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro along with improved butterfly key keyboards.

    Integrating such technology in the iPhone would give users new gestures to take advantage of, especially in gaming, but also in other applications.

    Wall Street Journal also says that Apple has a new color for the iPhone going through its testing stages pink. This would give females a more fitting color option if they didn't want the bland office colors of space gray, silver, or gold. It's unknown if the color will be ready by the next iteration of the iPhone, however.

    Are you excited to see this technology integrated in the next generation of iPhones?

      I hope it's not like the Blackberry Storm where the entire screen moves.

      Not sure how this would work on a phone. A laptop is stationary and a watch is strapped to your wrist, so hard-pressing is not a problem. Try holding your phone with one hand and force-pressing the opposite corner.

      Maybe it's one of those things where you'll be holding your iPhone in one hand and force-pressing with the other. Or maybe you'll be gaming in landscape mode with two hands and you can force press that way. I am 100% sure that using an iPhone one-handed is not the only way to hold an iPhone, as Steve Jobs demonstrated with the iPhone 4 antenna-gate issue .
