Indeed, even today, just before Apple sent out invites to the aforementioned event, a rumor cropped up that pointed to Apple including a 12MP, revamped camera in the upcoming iPhone models. Now, another report indicates that Apple will indeed feature a new color in the premium iPhone lineup, but it probably won’t be pink. Instead, as indicated by 9to5Mac, the new color will indeed be Rose Gold, and it will be obvious both in its color on the device, and that’s exactly what Apple is going to call it, too.
Interestingly enough, Apple will be going with a white front with the Rose Gold option, just like the regular Gold variant. Plus, the report indicates that while Apple may have considered using a sapphire crystal display in the next iPhones, they ultimately decided against it. That means the next iPhones will continue to use ionized glass, which Apple is referring to “Ion-X glass” full-time now.
One final bit: Force Touch is apparently going to be in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but the report states that Apple may actually change the name of it on the new iPhones. That would be an interesting shift, considering Force Touch is present on devices available to buy right now, so changing the name now may cause some confusion.[via 9to5Mac]
