force_touch_trackpad-640x360One of the rumored features of the upcoming iPhone 6s is the inclusion of Force Touch, a feature that originally debuted with the Apple Watch and was later introduced to Apple’s MacBook trackpads. Now in June we had heard that orders for the component had been placed, and now it looks like production is starting to ramp up.

This is according to a report from DigiTimes who claims that production of the component for the iPhone 6s has since ramped up, with as many as 36-40 million iPhones estimated to be built during the September quarter, followed by another 50 million in December. The ramping up in production doesn’t really come as a surprise.

After all if the component and feature is for real, it would be about now that Apple is stepping up their efforts. The next-gen iPhone is expected to be officially announced in September, but this is just based on Apple’s previous habits but unless Apple changes the timetable, chances are that will indeed be the case.

So far according to the rumors, Apple is expected to introduce Force Touch to their next-gen iPhones, along with an increase in RAM to 2GB, a 12MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera. It is also expected to sport a new A9 processor which should in theory be faster than its predecessor. In any case until we hear from Apple officially, take it with a grain of salt for now.
