Apple iPhone 6s & 6s Plus rumored to be using stronger 7000 series aluminum bodies


The upcoming Apple iPhone 6s and the 6s Plus may not face the same bendgate fiasco as their predecessors, as a new research note summarized by Macotakara reveals that Apple could use stronger aluminum for the new iPhones. The information comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, the famed analyst of KGI Securities.

According to the new info, the upcoming new iPhone model is going to be slightly bigger in terms of dimensions to its predecessor. The analyst has revealed that the next iPhone model will be wider and taller by 0.15mm and also slightly thicker by 0.2mm. So you could expect the iPhone 6s duo to be around 7.1 or 7.3mm thick. The larger dimensions could perhaps be attributed to the inclusion of ‘Force Touch’ technology on the new models.

The 7000 series aluminum has already been used by Apple in its Apple Watch, claimed to be 60 percent stronger than most aluminum. Not only will be the new models be stronger, but they are also likely to come in slightly different color options. Kuo believes the gold model will be closer to yellow gold and the space gray option will be darker than on the current iPhone 6 duo. A new rose gold color option is said to be offered as well.
