Apple’s much anticipated iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models are finally available for purchase in a total of 12 countries from the around the world. Those who don’t have access to the device have a large number of questions that are unanswered, with one of them being, ‘does the larger among the two phones bend like its predecessor?’
Expectant buyers will be pleased to know that it doesn’t. Unless of course, an extremely large amount of force is applied to it, which is highly unlikely in daily scenarios. The video in the space down below shows the iPhone 6S Plus being put through a rigorous bend test.
It comes from a YouTube channel named FoneFox, and shows us that the combined power of two persons is needed to actually bend the Apple smartphone slightly. And despite this, it still keeps working normally.
The iPhone 6S devices have been built by the company with series 7000 aluminum. They are moreover 0.2mm thicker than their precursors. These steps have definitely been taken by the company with an aim of not repeating the controversy that followed with the iPhone 6 Plus was found to be bending in users’ pockets.
The new smartphones from Apple have been released through retail stores in Australia, China, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Singapore, the UK and the US. They are available in 16GB, 64GB and 128GB variants, and come dressed in gold, silver, space gray and rose gold colors.
That the iPhone 6S Plus does not bend even under heavy pressure is good news to those wishing to buy the large device. Next month will see Apple releasing both the new handsets in more countries, with India being one of them.
