Will the iPhone 7 have Force Touch screens?

One of the biggest innovations announced in Monday’s Apple presser was the addition of a “Force Touch” trackpad to the new Macbook, which will detect just how hard you’re pressing down. Now, it seems, the same technology could be making its way to the iPhone.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Apple is planning to add Force Touch sensors to its next iteration of the phone.

The same article also suggests that Apple plans to keep the screen sizes on the next phones the same – 4.7″ and 5.5″ respectively.

Force Touch could add a new level of functionality to Apple’s iOS operating system – essentially giving it a right-click for the first time. This could mean we could see things like long-press to flag multiple items in a list, and so on.
