[* red] On the backside of the panel, we find what we believe to be the controller for the pressure sensors.
[* icon_note] Flip the back panel over, and there's a grid of...something.

[* icon_note] Apple worked closely with Corning, the makers of Gorilla Glass, to develop a pliable glass for the new iPhone's glass cover.
[* black] Unlike other phones, a press on an iPhone 6s needs to physically flexPressing down onto the glass very slightly bends the glass panel to register a soft or hard press on topdown at the point of contact, shortening the positional readings that traditional capacitive touchscreens providedistance between your finger and the corresponding capacitor plate in the array beneath the display, registering a harder push.
