According to a new report, the iPhone 6 will feature a range of new in-built sensors — including one for temperature, one for atmospheric pressure, and one for humidity.

The report comes for sources who spoke to Sun Chang Xu, news chief analyst at ESM-China, suggesting that Apple will include new sensors on its next generation iPhone to match (and possibly better) those features found in the Samsung Galaxy S4.

The iPhone 6 is also rumored to feature a new, larger display — said to measure around 4.7 inches, compared to the 4 inches of the iPhone 5s.

Apple may opt to include a new Ultra Retina display for the iPhone 6, featuring a higher resolution than the Retina display found in the iPhone 5.

Reports also indicate that the iPhone 6 will continue to utilise an 8 megapixel camera, although this may feature an updated camera sensor and new features over those included in the iPhone 5s.

The iPhone 6 is expected to launch this September — alongside iOS 8, and possibly Apple’s much-anticipated iWatch.
