The information was recently leaked through an email from major UK carrier Vodafone. The date of iPhone 6S release, however, has not been confirmed by the Apple brand.

Also, it is less likely that iPhone 6S will have the integrated fingerprint sensors the hitherto iconic 'home' button. Personnel from within the Taiwanese integrated circuit design industry are identifying the next steps in Apple's expansion of its in-house engineering remit, say sources.

Not only this, the next iPhone will look to tap the growing obsession with the selfies as the device may feature a front-facing camera with flash support.

Other reports suggest the upcoming iPhone may house a 2GB of RAM, Apple A9 SoCs, and 12-megapixel camera. The new Apple's device may also feature Touch ID support, NFC for Apple Pay, 802.11ac WiFi capabilities and LTE Advanced that have become integral to the iPhone.
