We’re just months away from seeing the next iPhone models — if history is any indication, Apple is expected to launch a new iPhone duo in September — which means the rumor mill is spinning wildly once again with iPhone-related news.

With Force Touch, iPhone owners would be able to perform different functions just by applying more force to their screen touches.

Case in point: A recent report from Bloomberg says that this year’s iPhone sequels will make use of pressure-sensitive displays that will incorporate Force Touch input, similar to the Apple Watch and the new line of MacBooks.

If that is indeed the case, then next-gen iPhone owners would be able to perform different functions just by applying more force to their screen touches. Imagine using Force Touch to see the dictionary definition of a word, scrub through videos, or preview a photo. That sounds like the kind of feature that smartphone novices and power users alike can appreciate.

Bloomberg’s tipsters also claim that the upcoming iPhones — in typical S model fashion — will retain the same design as currently available variants and will have 4.7- and 5.5-inch displays.
