Photos and CAD/CAM images show Apple iPhone 6s will be .2mm thicker than iPhone 6
Schematics leaked last month showed the Apple iPhone 6s measuring 7.1mm thick compared to the 6.9mm measurement of the Apple iPhone 6. The iPhone 6s measurement was backed up today by a CAD/CAM leak that showed the next-generation iPhone model to be 7.1mm thick. Sources say that the .2mm difference is made up completely by the difference in the thickness of the two models. That means that the rear camera will still be protruding on the iPhone 6s.

The reason for the extra girth on the iPhone 6s probably has to do with the inclusion of the Force Touch feature on this year's iPhone models. Force Touch, which is currently used on the Apple Watch, allows the screen to differentiate between a regular touch-input, and a stronger touch-input. This allows two different functions to be activated depending on how hard the screen is tapped. Earlier today, alleged images of the Apple iPhone 6s display unit surfaced, revealing that Apple might be using rivets inside the display to strengthen the shielding from the heavier touches that it will face.

The CAD/CAM images also reveal that the Apple iPhone 6s Plus will be an additional .2mm thicker than the iPhone 6s, making it 7.3mm thick. The current version of the phablet, the Apple iPhone 6 Plus, is 7.1mm thick.

Besides the CAD/CAM images, the slideshow reveals photographs supposedly showing the real iPhone 6s. The source says that these were obtained from old workers inside Foxconn, where the phone was assembled. In March 2014, a bit less than 6 months before the Apple iPhone 6 was unveiled, we got our first legit look at the device and its protruding camera from photos and CAD/CAM images leaked by a Foxconn insider. Has history repeated itself?
