Rear casing for Apple iPhone 6s Plus surfaces in a series of photographs revealing few changes

Rear casing for Apple iPhone 6s Plus surfaces in a series of photographs revealing few changes
At the end of June, we passed along some images alleged to be the rear housing for the Apple iPhone 6s. The only changes discovered were new mounting points for the handset's motherboard. Today, images of the rear housing for the Apple iPhone 6s Plus have appeared, and again there are only small changes seen when compared to the inside of the housing on the current model.

One change noted with the housing for the iPhone 6s Plus, is a higher placement for the speaker's screw hole. This points to a whole new speaker module that will be employed on the model. Another change is in the actual material used to make the rear housing. The source of the pictures says that the housing for the iPhone 6s Plus is stronger. This should prevent the device from bending. You might recall the entire #bendgate controversy which started when some iPhone 6 Plus users found that the device had bent in their rear pocket.

Earlier reports stated that Apple will be using the same Series 7000 Aluminum used on the Apple Watch, to prevent the next iteration of iPhones from bending. This is aircraft grade aluminum that should hold up to just about anything encountered over the course of the handset's lifetime.

We have a series of photos that you can browse through merely by clicking on the sourcelink below. The snapshots allegedly show the casing for the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, although we suggest taking the story with a grain of salt.


Thanks for the tip!

As long as Apple has a metal case around their iPhones. Then wireless charging will never be supported. Ikea furniture, some coffee shops are putting in wireless charging now. So if you ever used wireless charging, then you would know how convenient it truly is.

Still doesn't have lots of great usable things. Same old iPhone, same old Apple. But I am hoping they fixed the bending issue. Just using a better grade of aluminum doesn't prevent such. It requires a certain mixture of other metals that actually make it stronger when they are bonded together. I don't think anyone expect the iPhone 's model to have any significant upgrade over the previous model. I personally am surprised its get a camera upgrade.

I think bending issue (which was in iphone 6 plus) was due to faulty inner structure, I think Apple would have acted on it and made new iphone 6 and 6 plus stronger from within.

The bending issue had nothing to do with the inner structure it had to do with their choice of using the cheapest grade of aluminum possible in order to increase their insane profit margin even further.

Only 6 plus was bending at particular point, so that point was weaker, use of aluminium would or wouldn't solve that problem because phone was weaker at particular point. Since the aluminium was same on both 6 and 6 plus, I think it was design problem. And the cheaper aluminium added to problem too. Just my thought buddy.

The bending issue didn't occured with every iPhone owner,just like the proximity sensor bug of GS6 didn't occur with each customer or the touch issues with the LG G4 didn't occur to everyone.So stop speaking s**t and at least say something logical without typing a speech on it.

I had proximity sensor bug with my S4, solved it using some commands on terminal app. Iphone's issue was due to structural integrity of phone, and I think it will be a topic till iphone 6 plus gets a year (or 2) old.

Yeah cause most of the people use cases or/and screen protector but if you don't take care of it will bend easier than other phones well plus bends a lot easier.

I'm agree with techie, S series usually not offer significant change over iPhone 6. 2 gigs of ram should be given to iPhone 6, especially if the rumour about multiwindow multitasking was true.

Same here.

Me too. The only thing that could tempt me to upgrade earlier is Xperia Z5 but only if Sony gets the screen right (viewing angles and color accuracy).

IOS has seemed pretty good on my girlfriends iPhone. I would agree that most the last 3 gens are pretty much the same thing. Still a solid device.

If it gets camera upgrade and ram increase then I have a hard time choosing between the Plus and Note 5.

Depends on what are you looking for in device, note can do much more things than iphone can, but iphone does some things better than note. But I think note is bang for bucks because of the build quality, all features you get compared to 6 plus. If you wait for few (3-6) months you can get note for cheaper than plus price. Usually note price drops from 800-850 in first month to 650 in 3 months and 550 in 6 months, after that price drop is slow till next note shows up.

Still ugly. Iphone 5S is prettier than that.

The 6s might just be the iPhone I'm looking for since the 5S

Why is the apple logo a hole?

27. AlikMalix unregistered

Apple doesn't just etch the logo on their back, they use a different piece for it - it's so smooth against the rest of the case that you can't tell. But that's how it is on the 6/6+ as well. Just a choice in design.

The same old Apple. hardly any upgrade, but fans behave as if apple has invented something new for each new release. Basically it is fooling apple loyalists. Apple knows coming out with any crap will sale.
