Apple's iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will come in rose gold, but not pink
We're quickly approaching iPhone Season, and with September 9th slated for the launch event, there will apparently be a new color option in the offing. We've heard on numerous occasions that Apple may throw in a rose gold configuration for those in search of a precious-looking finish, and while other rumors hinted at a pink finish for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, the very notion of such a move was recently and comprehensively shot down. Now, a report from 9to5Mac reaffirms the idea of a rose gold color variant akin to the Apple Watch, although unlike Cupertino's (very, very expensive) wrist computer, it won't be genuine rose gold.
As with the gold iPhone, it'll be made to appear rose gold rather than actually being such, which will, in turn, allow Apple to retail the device at the same price as the rest of the pack. There's no telling, as yet, whether rose gold will go down as popularly as the gold iPhone 5s did back in 2013. But since the design of the next-gen handsets will be the same as the current fleet, it's likely to be fairly in-demand since some iPhone 6s and 6s Plus owners will want to showcase their handset's status as the latest and greatest.
The report also notes that the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will utilize Apple's so-called 'Ion-X glass' rather than sapphire crystal as has been speculated. There will also be animated wallpaper support, a 12-megapixel main shooter, and a variant of the Force Touch feature as seen through Apple's MacBook line-up.
Apparently, Apple may go with a different name than 'Force Touch' for the pressure-sensing implementation, mainly because said feature will focus on creating short-cuts through iOS. But alas, the key details of these plans have yet to manifest.
