Will the iPhone 6s bend? This video gives us an early answer
It's said that the new iPhones are made out of 7000 series aluminum - this is significantly tougher than the 6063 aluminum alloy used for last year's iPhones.
Lewis from Unbox Therapy (who was the first to reveal how easy the iPhone 6 bends) managed to obtain a rear shell that reportedly belongs to the iPhone 6s, and put it through a fairly scientific bend test. What's more, he also analyzed the elemental make-up of the new rear shell, seemingly confirming that it is indeed 7000 series aluminum - which, besides aluminum, contains a significant percentage of zinc.
As you'll see in the video below, the iPhone 6s shell was tested alongside a shell from the 2014 iPhone 6. Apparently, the old shell bends at about 30 pounds (13 kg) of force, while the iPhone 6s shell is at least two times tougher - most likely meaning that the iPhone 6s will be much harder to bend in real life. That's great news, right?
