So, Apple is expected to reveal the latest iPhone sometime in September. But you'd probably don't have to wait that long to sneak a peek - thanks to some leaked images we found on the Internet. The images were leaked by tech site 9TO5Mac which has a good record of leaking 'classified' Apple information before the launch.

Based on the alleged leaked photos, the iPhone 6S will unlikely have much change in terms of appearance

The next-generation iPhone will have a rear design identical to that of the current iPhone, similar to the transition from the iPhone 5 to iPhone 5S. Our images show no noticeable external changes coming from the iPhone 6 — even the Space Gray color has remained light, contrasting with the darker Space Gray Apple Watch — but it is possible that Apple’s final hardware could include additional tweaks.

The iPhone 6S will also be equipped with the same speakers, connectors and microphones

The bottom design of the iPhone 6S is exactly the same as with the prior model, down to the number of speaker holes and the position of the headphone, microphone, and Lightning holes. This will be good news for case and accessory makers, who won’t have to worry about redesigning their iPhone 6 products for the iPhone 6S.

Although the changes in appearance might be minimal, there'll be some pretty significant updates under the hood of the iPhone 6S. Improved battery life is one!

The report notes that the motherboard for the new iPhone is narrower than in previous models, which could hint at a larger, longer-lasting battery.

Combined with iOS 9’s new power-saving features and low-power mode, it would make sense for Apple to also improve battery life by way of upgraded hardware.

For everyday users, this gives the potential for significant increases in LTE network performance with download speeds of up to 300 Mbps, twice that of the current iPhone line. Real-world limitations of carrier support will, however, limit those speed improvements in many cases.

The leaked images didn't shed any light on the ForceTouch featured on the Apple Watch, but according to a report by Bloomberg, manufacturers are bringing over the Apple Watch tech to the iPhone 6S
