Bloomberg Confirms Yesterday's news that Apple is working with Suppliers on the Next iPhone with Force Touch

10. 15  PA  XTRA NEWS

Early yesterday we reported that "HDI PCB Manufacturers Cheer as they Up Production for Force Touch Parts for Apple's next iPhone." We noted that Apple was set to increase orders to its FPCB suppliers including Zhen Ding Technology and Flexium Interconnect. Late today Bloomberg confirmed yesterday's news.


Bloomberg reports that "Apple is bringing Force Touch, first unveiled for the Apple Watch and the newest MacBook model, to the iPhone at least two years after it started working with suppliers to perfect the pressure-sensitive displays. The feature, which lets users adjust the strength of their screen taps to bring up different functions, is Apple's latest move to stay ahead of rivals such as Samsung Electronics Co., which this year released its latest Galaxy smartphone with a screen that can be viewed from the side."


It's great news, but we knew this yesterday morning.
