iPhone 6 could include temperature, pressure and humidity sensors
One of the biggest questions that many of us are asking with the recent batch of iPhone 6 rumors, is exactly how does Apple plan to differentiate its new smartphone. We’ve heard rumors of the iPhone 6 getting bigger, but then again, so is every other smartphone in the market at the moment. New rumors now point to this device including some additional sensors, and this makes the rumors more compelling.
According to electronics analyst Sun Chang Xu, the iPhone could include three new sensors, which would be a temperature, pressure and humidity sensor. These aren’t sensors that measure your temperature though, nor the pressure you apply to the phone, but really the sensors a meteorologist would use to give you the weather. We’re talking ambient temperature, pressure altitude and dew point respectively. It’s just hard to tell what Apple plans to do with these since hey, we already receive very accurate data from the Internet on our current smartphones.
Obviously weather reports are given from specific weather locations, and not really from where you’re standing, so there could be a compelling case to have these. Whatever the scenario may be, it’s not like if the Galaxy S4 didn’t include some of these, so let’s see how Apple plans to top what Samsung already did with the iPhone 6.
