Apple is gearing up for their San Francisco event on September 9th, and one of the several major announcements expected is that the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will shoot 4k resolution video. That is what 9to5mac.com reported according to their sources, although it’s not clear whether the phone will shoot 4096 x 2160 (true 4k resolution) or 3840 x 2160 (the Ultra HD standard).

In either case, expect the iPhone 6s with 4k resolution video will work nicely with the 27‑inch iMac with Retina 5K display. And, like everyone else we’re hoping the next Apple TV will support 4k, allowing Ultra HD TVs with the right decoding to display 4k via Airplay.

The other major revealing is that the iPhone will finally get a megapixel boost on it’s main iSight camera. It seems like forever that the iPhone cameras maxed out at 8 megapixels since the iPhone 4s. Now, the camera on the new iPhone 6s will shoot in 12 megapixels.

The Facetime camera, according to sources, will also get a much needed LED Flash.

The new iPhone 6s will also feature a Force Touch display, animated wallpapers with improved user interface, and a faster A9 processor.

In other expected announcements at the Apple media event the iPhone 5c will be discontinued, and, don’t expect an unveiling of an iPhone 6c — that’s a rumor that has apparently been squashed.

And while Apple is expected to reveal a new Apple TV that will support 4k video, their long-awaited Apple TV service has been delayed.
