Since the launch of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, several owners complaint that the device bends when a certain pressure is applied, especially while placing the phone in tight pockets. The reason for the bend is due to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus being made out of Aluminium, which is a relatively soft metal and is fairly ductile and flexible so, if enough pressure is applied, it will bend and move.

So avoid this “Bend Gate”, Apple is planning on using 7000 series aluminium, which is used to make sports bikes and the Apple Watch Sport. According to Apple, the 7000 series aluminium is  60 per cent stronger than standard alloys.

Apple will launch the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus in September and may include an A9 chip and latest version of iOS. It is also being rumored that the Silicon Valley tech giant will launch a four-inch version of the phone called the iPhone 6C.
