iPhone 6S release date rumours & new features: New iPhone could have joystick Home button for gamers

Ashleigh Allsopp | Jan. 27, 2015
Take a look at the latest concept images of the iPhone 6S, and read all of the latest iPhone 6S rumours.

Yes, that's right, the Home button could have a spring beneath it that allows it to pop up and become a joystick for when you're playing one of the many amazing games available on the iOS App Store.

It sounds like a great idea to the iPhone gamers here at Macworld, with one potential downfall being the Home button's susceptibility to damage if it's able to pop up from its standard position. It's probably unlikely that this feature will come to the next generation iPhone, but it's certainly a possibility for the iPhone after that!

iPhone 6S rumours: Battery life
There have been some rumours about different charging methods for the iPhone 6S, including wireless charging (that didn't arrive with the iPhone 6 as predicted, but was introduced to the Apple Watch as inductive charging), as well as a new, reversible USB charger.

In August, rumoured about the new charger emerged on YouTube, thanks to a view that showed a prototype cable in action with a reversible USB connector as well as the already reversible Lightning connector.

iPhone 6S rumours: Concept images
There are already some concept images of the iPhone 6S (but no leaked components or shots from the production line yet), so we thought we'd share them with you as food for thought.

Designer Martin Hajek, who is becoming well-known for his technology concept illustrations, has come up with the concept image below for Business Insider, as well as the image featured at the top of this article.

Engineer Nikola Cirkovic has created a concept of the iPhone 6S, as picked up by Business Insider.

It has a 5.2in screen, two thin lines that act as sensors that can tell whether the iPhone is in your pocket or on the table, for examle, and finger sensors instead of switches and buttons on the sides.

Behance user Grisha Serov has also come up with an iPhone 6S concept based on the Apple Watch's steel design. Check out the full gallery on Grisha's portfolio.
