If the report is accurate -- Apple did not respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post and generally declines to weigh in on rumors -- you probably won't notice the difference. Credit cards are about 0.76 mm thick, which is more than three times thicker than the supposed difference between the iPhone 6 and upcoming device.
That said, the new device's thickness could make room for an entirely new feature. Cult of Mac reports that the so-called iPhone 6S will feature "Force Touch," the technology that allows new MacBooks and the Apple Watch to understand how hard you're pressing them.
The feature has been expected in the new iPhone for months.
Meanwhile, the phone presumably won't have more storage. As 9to5Mac reports, the 6S will start at 16GB, a model that has produced billions in profit for Apple.
In a recent HuffPost/YouGov poll, most Americans said they'd prefer thicker smartphones if it meant better battery life -- it's unclear if one will lead to the other in this case, though.
