A new report by 9to5Mac claims that Apple plans to support force touch in iOS 9 for future addition to the iPhone 6s, along with a number of other enhancements to existing features in tow.

Apple Pay and Passbook will reportedly gain Canadian support in iOS 9, although the infrastructure and agreements with Canadian banks may not be finalized in time for launch.

Alongside this, the company plans to tweak the keyboard to work better in both landscape and portrait keyboard mode and will make it easier to tell when the shift key is selected.
