    I'm assuming that the new iPhone will be different in size from the 6. Is that correct or no?

    If there is a size difference, it's likely to be negligible (ie. old cases should fit).

    Regardless, I'll be using the same case I use now: my hand.

    Looks like you won't have to change hands then. :)

    We can't be 100% sure, but the 3Gs, 4s, and 5s all matched the physical dimensions of their predecessors, and therefore fit in the same cases. The pattern of the "s" models having only upgraded internals has persisted for 5 years so far.

    Agreed. I think it is a fairly safe assumption that the demensions will remain the same.

    Didn't the 4s move the silent switch ever so slightly? But that's the only change so far. Never had a 4s so not sure how it affected cases.

    This is correct. This caused some perfectly cut cases for the iPhone 4 to not fit the 4s.

    If recent reports/rumors are to be believed, the new iPhone will be 7.1mm thick compared to the 6.9mm of the iPhone 6. Make of that what you will.

    We're there not some rumors about the "S" version being slightly thicker? I thought I read that they were increasing its strength to give it a bit more structural integrity.

    Just rumors anyway.

    How will Force touch be affected by screen protectors?

    A good way of knowing exactly how much of a difference the iPhone 6s will be from the iPhone 6s is by comparing it to the iPhone 6+ that already is 7.1mm.
