The next iPhone may feature sensors for atmospheric pressure, temperature and humidity, according to electronics analyst Chang Xu.
On her Weibo account Chang Xu, news chief analyst at ESM-China, said that sources close to the matter revealed that Apple will ‘catch up in the sensors department’.
Other rumours making the rounds suggest that the iPhone 6 will feature a larger 4.7-inch screen packed into the same size front panel as the existing Phone 5 and 5S.
The new screen may have a 1600×900 resolution, making it greater than the ones currently used in the iPhone 5S 5C and 5.
Another report suggests that the iPhone 6 will be joined by an even larger smartphone when it’s unveiled this year. A 5.6-inch phone featuring a sapphire screen is rumoured to not carry the ‘iPhone’ brand name.
