Apple reportedly prepping Force Touch actions on forthcoming iPhone 6S, 6S Plus

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is widely expected to release new iPhones in September, likely during a media event Sept. 9. And, according to a new report from 9to5Mac, Apple will bring the Force Touch technology currently available on its Apple Watch into its new iPhones.

The phones, which will likely be called the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, will reportedly support Apple's Force Touch technology, which registers hard and soft presses. On the Apple Watch, the technology allows users to access more options. On Apple's forthcoming iPhones, 9to5Mac reports that the technology will allow users to more quickly navigate through Apple's iOS operating system.

Specifically, according to the publication, Force Touch on iOS will allow users to more quickly navigate to a location on Apple's mapping service, bypassing several of the existing menu steps in iOS. Or, for example, users can more quickly add songs to their playlists in the Music app. In another example outlined by 9to5Mac, users will be able to access their voicemail by conducting a Force Touch on the iPhone's Phone icon. Article
