According to 9to5Mac's Mark Gurman, two sources that have used iPhone 6S prototypes say the iPhone 6S may come with the same moving wallpapers that was first used on the Apple Watch earlier this year.
The Apple iPhone 6s will have an animated lock screen
Apple is reportedly adding new options, different from those on the Apple Watch, for the phone.
On the watch, options to choose from are a jellyfish, a butterfly, or a flower. You can then customize any these with different colors, and the motion effect makes it look like they're floating.
Apple is reportedly adding new options, different from those on the Apple Watch, for the phone, as Gurman reports that you'll be able to choose from colorful smoke, a fish, and a koi pond.
Jony Ive, Apple's design chief, has said in the past that the company took a different approach to the Apple Watch's screen compared to the iPhone.
In an interview with The New Yorker, Ive said the watch uses deeper blacks than that of the iPhone for its screen.
"The whole of the display comes on,” he said to The New Yorker referring to the iPhone 6. “That, to me, feels very, very old.”
Because the watch uses deeper blacks for its screen, it looks as if there's very little, if any, frame surrounding it. Ive's comment about the iPhone 6's screen feeling "old" could mean that the company is working on something new and possibly similar to the Apple Watch.
Gurman did say, however, that his sources said these animation features were part of a test conducted with a prototype device and may not make it to the final product.
