Every year, it seems as though new iPhone rumors propagate across the blogosphere months preceding the next-generation’s announcement and subsequent release. Although it’s only been slightly less than four months since Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were released, it’s never too early to begin discussing the next-generation iPhone, which will likely be dubbed the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, both of which (according to new rumors) may receive a much-needed upgrade!

According to TechNews Taiwan, Apple may increase the amount of RAM, in addition to using improved and faster LPDDR4 RAM technology in the iPhone 6s.
The aforementioned evolution in technology would noticeably trump the current 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM used in the latest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models.
Furthermore, beyond using faster RAM, it’s said that the new iPhone 6s will also sport double the memory capacity of its predecessor, i.e. feature 2GB of RAM – an upgrade that many had hoped would be found in the current-generation iPhone.

Beyond the doubling of RAM and the use of newer RAM technology, it’s also speculated that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will make use of Apple’s in-development A9 SoC (system on a chip) and a vastly improved dual-lens camera.
Also in an interesting, yet plausible, claim, the report also mentions that the next-generation iPhone models will adopt Apple’s new “Force Touch” technology, which will be found on the forthcoming Apple Watch to distinguish between normal taps and those with increased pressure (likely to open app-specific menus or to accomplish other tasks).
While we’re still over half a year away from catching our first glimpse of the far-off iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, we’ll have complete coverage on the inevitable devices – don’t forget to like us on Facebook for additional updates.
