Rumors have been around for quite some time now that Apple’s next-generation iPhone will feature a more durable exterior to address the bendgate issue. This new video analyzes a purported shell of an iPhone 6s and compare it against the case Apple used in the current iPhone 6 and iPhoen 6s Plus devices and reveals some expected and surprising differences between the two.
Apple’s first duo of larger and thinner devices; iPhoen 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus fell victim to ‘bendgate’ controversy resulting in question being raised about the durability o the duo. If the rumors of a new case for Apple’s next generation devices turns out to be true, the iPhoen 6s body will not only be durable, it will come with added strength around the volume buttons where the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus are considered to be weak and susceptible to pressure.
In a latest video comparison, the back plates of both the current generation iPhone models and the purported iPhone 6s device are put to the test. While there is no noticeable different at first glance, but the alleged iPhone 6s backplate is measured at 138.2mm tall by 67.16mm wide while the backplate of current generation iPhone is at 138.09mm tall by 66.91mm wide. This must be an answer to the last year’s ‘bendgate’ scandal hit the iPhone devices.
The iPhone 6s plate is 1.90mm thick while the iPhone 6 case measures at 1.14mm around the volume and power buttons. This is the region where the current iPhone models are believed to be weaker.
Despite the fact that the claimed iPhoen 6s backplate is taller, wider and thicker than the iPhone 6 backplate, Apple has still managed to make it lighter than the current device. The backplate of iPhone 6s weighs ar around 25g while the iPhone 6 casing is measured at 27g. Still we cannot infer that the final and fully assembled iPhoen 6s will be lighter than the current iPhone models because Force Touch display could also add some weight to the final product.
Apple is expected to unveil its new devices during a media event around September 9 along with new iPad models and an all new Apple TV as well.
