Force Touch or Free Touch

Mr. PQ wants me to write my assessment of the pending iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. I imagine this has more to do with the fact that I keep referring to the new “free touch” feature and that he has been away on business for a week; Mrs. PQ talking free touch is sounding pretty sexy right about now. While dreams of “free touch” have floated through Mr. PQ’s head, I’ve occupied my evenings reading up on MacRumors, 9 to 5 Mac, The Loop, CNET, Wired etc to broker an understanding of what all the hub bub is about.

Last night I learned that there is no such thing “free touch” in Apple iPhone parlance; rather the term is “force touch" which frankly doesn’t sound appealing at all. Especially as I just took the 18 year old to AT&T to swap out yet another iPhone that she has “force touched” through 3 replacement glass screens, a home button and ultimately an entire 5c encasement. I frankly don’t think the words “force” and “touch” should be used in tandem any where near a child who mountain bikes and rock climbs, generally with her iPhone in her back pocket.

I do like the rumor that the 6s series may be constructed from the same aluminum as that used in Apple Watch. Yes, the phone will be stronger, but better still, we will get to hear Jony Ive say al-lu-minium repeatedly…simply dreamy.

I’m certain there are any number of intelligent things I could say about the S upgrade, but I will leave that to those far more adept. In the mean time, my thoughts will linger on the new, magnificently crafted Pad & Quill women’s leather Apple Watch bands Mr. PQ is returning with, picking up a bottle of wine and some quality free touch time when Mr. PQ returns later this evening.
