Mark Gurman: "Force Touch On iPhone 6S Revealed"

Mark Gurman breaks some news on the iPhone 6s:

According to sources, the iOS version of Force Touch is known internally as “Orb.” Instead of opening up a large window of extra controls that did not fit on the screen, as is done on the Apple Watch, Force Touch on the iPhone is designed to skip existing lists of options or button presses. “There is consistent usage of Force Touch across the operating system to ‘shortcut’ actions,” rather than present new options like with the Apple Watch, according to a source.

In addition to Force Touch, Gurman adds some color to the 6s' expected specifications— A9 processor, 2GB of RAM, faster LTE, and improved battery life.
