The next-generation iPhone, often referred to as the "iPhone 6s," will likely retain the same exterior design as the iPhone 6, based on purported images of the device's rear shell obtained by 9to5Mac. The report claims the rear shell is identical to the iPhone 6 on the outside, including the same thickness and width, with only minor internal differences.

The leaked photos of the "iPhone 6s" reveal that the Lightning connector, speakers, microphones, headphone jack, volume rocker, mute button, sleep/wake button, SIM card slot, antenna lines and cutout for the rear-facing camera and LED flash are all identical to the iPhone 6, which is unsurprising given that "S" model iPhones have historically looked almost identical to the iPhone released one year prior.

While the exterior design on the "iPhone 6s" looks unchanged, the rear shell has a notably different internal mounting structure that suggests a new logic board and other components are incoming. In particular, the next-generation iPhone is rumored to include an A9 processor with 2GB of RAM, Force Touch, 7000 Series aluminum and improved 12-megapixel camera, among other changes.

Never change a winning team right? But i feel a bit sorry for the creative team behind the iPhone. Not much changed for them in years. Must be boring as hell.

I'm going to suggest a two piece 6S Plus. All the new features, same great screen but let me detach the logic board and take it with me paired to my watch for GPS and processing in a light weight package. Running with a 6 Plus is not exactly easy. I know I can leave it home but prefer to have a phone with me when I'm out. You never know.

Really off-topic here, but I can't wait to get rid of that awful red iTunes icon on my Mac aswell.
The new one is a less consistent color and doesn't match the other icons well on OS X, so I'll probably be putting the red one back when I update.

On topic: Hoping for OLED on the 6s+. I'm ready to upgrade from my tiny 5s.
