One of the prolific tech controversies that plague the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last year was ‘Bendgate.’ Apparently, if you apply force in the middle, the larger iPhone could be easily bent. There are users who have reported that the phone was bent after carrying it on their back pocket. This time around, will there be a similar controversy on the iPhone 6S Plus?
Whether you think it was a big deal or not, Apple seems to take the ‘bendgate’ issue quite seriously by using a stronger Series 7000 aluminium and the “world’s strongest glass” on the new iPhone 6S Plus. With that said, is the iPhone 6S Plus now bend proof? The video below by FoneFox should answer your question.
As you can see in the video, the person tried first to bend the iPhone 6S Plus using his thumbs which has enough force to bend the iPhone 6 Plus before. With his continued, there are no signs that the 6S Plus is about to budge. There are signs that the iPhone has been flexing a bit but it had no problem returning to its normal state after the pressure applied was stopped. Later in the video, the person enlisted the help of his buddy to help bend the iPhone 6S Plus. After multiple tries with two persons, the iPhone eventually showed signs of bending.
So what does this tell us? Well, considering that it took two persons to bend the iPhone 6S Plus, it should be safe to say that it’s now bend proof. Sure it did get bent, but we really doubt that it will occur with just normal usage. So if you are still worried about bendgate with regards to the newer iPhones, don’t!
