The feature allows the phones to provide different functions based on how lightly or firmly the screen is pressed.

By pressing lightly on the screen, users will see a preview of the content such as a email or text message. Pressing harder will take the user to the full content.

The iPhone 6S and 6S Plus will also feature a 12 megapixel camera.

The new phones, which Apple CEO Tim Cook described as the "most advanced smartphones in the world" will be available in four metallic colours - silver, gold, space grey and rose gold. They will run the new operating system, iOS 9, which will be available on other iPhones and iPads from 16 September.

The phones can be pre-ordered in the UK on Saturday 12 September, and will be available on September 26.
