Apple has confirmed its annual keynote event on September 9 this year. It is highly expected that the company will announce the next generation iPhone 6S and the iPhone 6S Plus on the event. The new iPhone will have the similar design of the current flagship, but will come with more improvements and tweaks.
Meanwhile, there is also much speculation that, Apple might announce the much-rumored iPhone 7 and will feature the Force Touch functionality. However, a Taiwanese publication recently reported that Apple will go back to the glass-on-glass touchscreen technology, quoting unnamed industry sources.
Apple switched from glass-on-glass touch panels to in-cell touchscreen starting from iPhone 5. Well, the in-cell touch technology reduces the thickness of the display unit by integrating the touch panel, makes the smartphone thinner without reducing the size of the battery.
Apple is definitely not switching back to the old glass-on-glass technology for its iPhone 7, which is expected in 2016. However, several reports claims that the next generation iPhone will come with new and improved version of the ultra-thin glass-on-glass touch technology.
