Naturally Apple updates its iPhone lineup once a year, with the usual tricky-manner allowing it to release a big upgrade every two years. This year is no different and with alternate years seeing simple bumps in speed without an entire aesthetic redesign. iPhone 6s already said to feature almost no changes as far as looks are concerned. Inside though, things are going to be altered from the current release.
A glimpse of what is so-called to be the iPhone 6s, leaked photos suggest that the next-generation iPhone will offer more faster LTE speeds. Reports also claims that Apple would be using a new type of LTE chip in the new iPhone 6s, and that now appears accurate with outed images of the prototype device showqing a Qualcomm MDM9635M SoC in use. Or else known as the 9X35, the current iPhone uses a model that is good two years older in design, the 9X25. With such optimistic change, the upgraded LTE chip on iPhone 6s should theriotically allow for increased 4G LTE speeds as well as an improvement in the amount of power backup being used.
According to 9to5Mac, the X935 chip inside 6s spotted in the oft-mentioned prototype allows for a theriotical maximum of 300Mbps download speeds, though real world speeds are expected to be around the 225Mbps figure. Of course, it depends on the carrier that you are locked in and using with some current iPhones not able to max out their existing LTE chips, don’t expect huge speed increases with the iPhone 6s. A bit identical to the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 in shape and design. The rear-camera placement, speaker and headphone-jack arrangement on the bottom of the device is similar to the current iPhone design.
However, one area everyone should notice an improvement is in the battery department, with the new chip also said to be better at handling juice than its predessors. New Qualcomm chip would be also more power efficient resulting into an improved better battery life than the iPhone 6. Allowing for a smaller motherboard, and it is even possible that the move to the 9X35 could allow Apple to include larger batteries in the new iPhone (6s).
Apple is expected to announce and release the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus this September with production currently underway, assuming it follows its tried and tested release schedule. The next generation iPhone may retain similar physical designs of its predecessors, incuding 4.7″ and 5.5″ screen sizes. Rumored to feature an A9 chipset with 2GB of RAM, Force Touch, improved camera, 7000 series aluminum, a new rose gold color option., improved Touch ID recognition and more.
The new iPhones (6s / 6s Plus) will be the first to ship with the new iOS 9 software and with the update currently in the hands of developers for beta testing.
