Reinforced aluminum alloy made iPhone 6s Plus virtually inflexible [video]

Last year, some iPhone 6 Plus users have noticed that their smartphones are bent when placed in your pants pocket. The news caused a lot of noise, so there is nothing surprising in the fact that as soon as the release of the iPhone 6s Plus, he was subjected to similar “execution” to find out how durable the construction is. And, apparently, the owners of new products will not have any problems with excessive flexibility of the body.

Apple has taken several steps to strengthen the iPhone 6s. In particular, the company strengthened the walls in those places where there are toggle buttons for volume and lock devices – that is where the bent iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Also made a number of changes in the arrangement of fastening elements, whereby the new iPhone 6s has become more robust and resilient.

Directly “shell” iPhone 6s is made of aluminum 7000-series – aluminium alloy with zinc. This material is used in a “smart” watch Apple Watch Sport, successfully proving its resistance.

The author of the practical experiment was made by the new Zealand project FoneFox, the creators have made every effort to give the iPhone 6s Plus curved shape. Last year, the iPhone 6 Plus could deform “bare hands”, but the novelty withstood such abuse.

Only when the smartphone came from just two people, who made a lot of effort to bend the device, the housing is slightly bent. Under normal conditions the iPhone 6s is unlikely to be subjected to such loads, so that gadget in your pocket can be worn safely.

Note that for the first time about the deformation Apple communicators talk in 2012 after the release of iPhone 5. This was the result of several underlying factors, to replace the glass plate on the rear panel in aluminium, which increased the screen size of the device and the reduced thickness of the body. As a result, some time after the receipt of smartphone on the market, the Internet has filled photos allegedly bent during normal wear in a pants pocket iPhone 5.
