The next iPhone and iOS 9 will support Force Touch

With the introduction of the Apple Watch, Apple not only introduced a new product but also new technology within its own product portfolio. The "Digital Crown" and "Force Touch" sensor are two features that have created a simpler way of navigating a device. With the release of Apple's latest Macbook featuring Force Touch, it's very clear that Apple intends to bring Force Touch to other devices.

The folks over at 9to5Mac have confirmed through their sources that the upcoming iPhone and iOS 9 will have support for Force Touch. Furthermore, Apple has designed iOS 9 with Force Touch in mind and will also be working with developers to integrate the feature into their applications.

According to 9to5Mac's sources:

Force Touch will be integrated into Maps to drop new pins, into media players for pressure-sensitive scrolling, into the Calendar for adding new events, and across the system for quickly looking up word definitions, according to sources who have used Force Touch on prototype versions of the “iPhone 6S.”

While there could be an announcement at Apple's WWDC in June, sources are speculating that the Force Touch announcement will not be making its debut until the new iPhone is announced sometime later this year.
