Apple Insider, back in April:
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities issued a research note on
Thursday, a copy of which was obtained by AppleInsider, in which
he reaffirmed that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will indeed
feature Force Touch input. […]
According to Kuo, Force Touch on the iPhone will represent “the
most significant change” to date in the iPhone user interface. In
fact, the change will be so substantial that he believes Apple
may decide to call the handset the “iPhone 7,” rather than an
Wrong, and rather foolish.
“We believe that iPhone’s Force Touch sensor doesn’t directly
detect the pressure applied by fingers,” Kuo said. “Instead, it
monitors the contact area on which the finger touches the screen
to decide how big the pressure is.”
Kuo has had some scoops before — he was the first to call the iPhone 6 Plus’s 1920 × 1080 pixel resolution — but his record is far from perfect.
