While Apple might have shrugged off last year’s bendgate scandal to a few outliers, the fact that the Cupertino company switched up to a more durable 7000 series aluminum for the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus is pretty telling. However even if you had no issues with bending previously, we suppose the switch to a sturdier material is still welcome.
That being said, how does the 7000 series aluminum fare? Is it really much tougher than its predecessor? The folks at FoneFox decided to put the new phone to the test by taking the larger iPhone 6s Plus and subjecting it to a bend test. Based on their tests, they do conclude that the new iPhones are indeed much harder to bend than before.
However we should note that grabbing the phone and bending it with all your might with your bare hands can hardly be called scientific. We would have preferred to see a machine being used to bend the phones in order to see some actual numbers, but either way we suppose for a start this video sums it up pretty well.
So if you’re thinking about picking up the new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus and are worried about it bending in your pocket, we reckon this video should do a good enough job of allaying your fears.
