A break from tradition it seems.
Customers always have an expectation from next generation devices that they’ll be thinner than their predecessors, the iPhone has followed the same thinking over the past few year with each new generation being thinner than the last. If a report is to be believed then that might not be the case with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, both next generation iPhones are claimed to be thicker than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
This obviously doesn’t mean that the new iPhones will be so thick that nobody is going to want them, they’re said to be only 0.2mm thicker than the existing flagship iPhones, come to think of it the change is so nominal that most users won’t be able to feel the difference anyway.
One of the reasons for this could be the rumored inclusion of the Force Touch sensor within the display, perhaps that’s a good trade-off to make as long as you get the abilities of Force Touch on the iPhone. Apple has not yet confirmed when the new iPhones will be officially announced, however a recent report claims that the event might take place between September 4 and September 13th.
