Apple iPhone 6s rumor: Pegatron ready to allocate 50% of its assembly line for Cupertino's 2015 flagship
The Apple iPhone 6 and its larger counterpart, the iPhone 6 Plus, are by no means long in the tooth - after all, we've been enjoying them for but a few months now, yet rumors regarding Cupertino's portfolio for 2015 are already circulating in the air. As per these speculations, the next iPhone will retain the same naming scheme that was used with the iPhone 4s and 5s, thus it will bear the Apple iPhone 6s moniker.

While no one knows if it will the very same overall design language of the current iPhone generation or will be entirely different, yet we know that Pegatron, one of Apple's biggest Taiwan-based contractors, is ready to re-allocate 50% of its assembly line and fully substitute Foxconn as the main maker of the upcoming iPhone 6s

These speculations about the physical assembler of the upcoming Apple smartphone led to a 1.78% increase in Pegatron's stock shares. In the meantime, we already know that the high demand for iPhone 6 display panels has reportedly forced Foxconn to invest a hefty sum of money into a new plant that will be up and running by the end of 2015, which seems a little bit counter-intuitive, given that at the time the iPhone 6s will probably be the star of the show.

Meh. We all know what's coming with next year's "s" models. Improved cameras (More MP, 4K amongst others) Integration with Beats Streaming better headphones bundled with phone Improvements to health better graphics faster fingerprint scanner Improvements to Apple Pay That's about it. Maybe we can expect a new sensor r two, slightly improved processor or slight improvements to display but nothing major other than listed above.

Not really, let me fix that for you. Same camera with maybe more slo-mo and some minor software gimmick with it. Same headphones with more expensive beats sold separately, possibly with NFC pairing. Improvements to health (iOS 9 update) Better proc and more RAM Higher resolution The one thing Apple does well is package marketing with minor upgrades to make it seem like it is worth it. Then they leave just enough out so every year on the release of an iPhone, the most talked about thing is the next iPhone. Always take the rumors of an iPhone and remove half or more of the expected upgrades, you will have a pretty solid picture of the next iPhone. Basically just take away your hope for the next iPhone until it makes you think "maybe next year".

You're right! However, if history is something to go by, the "S" versions usually focus on the camera. Considering how the camera was the obvious holdout with the current release it should be the major focus with the next one. The rest is anyone's guess!

You likely will see improvements in camera and processor (90+% probability). RAM may increase, too (75% probability). Screen resolution will not change with the S editions.
