“Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities issued a new research note on Tuesday, a copy of which was obtained by AppleInsider, in which he revealed a number of changes planned for Apple’s so-called ‘iPhone 6s,'” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider. “Specifically, he said that Apple will offer a new rose gold option, though he didn’t indicate how much the high-end luxury model might cost.”
“Kuo did not indicate whether the new rose gold ‘iPhone 6s’ would be made of actual gold like the high-end Apple Watch, or if it will simply resemble the color found on the Apple Watch Edition,” Hughes reports. “Other changes to the new handset are said to include a new design with different casing materials and a restructured internal design, addressing the supposed bending issues that affected the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.”
“Kuo also corroborated information first reported by AppleInsider in February and reaffirmed that the next-generation iPhone will feature Force Touch input,” Hughes reports. “Kuo also restated his earlier claims that there will be no new 4-inch iPhone model this year, leaving screen sizes of 4.7 and 5.5 inches.”

MacDailyNews Take: “A new design?” That would heighten the probability of an “iPhone 7” instead of an “iPhone 6s,” if Apple continues with this naming scheme (as opposed to moving to simply “iPhone” with date designations such as “(Late 2015),” for example).
