Leaked 'iPhone 6s Plus' Images Showcase Rear Casing and 'Stronger Body'

A few new images of the so-called "iPhone 6s Plus" today have been shared by Future Supplier (via Nowhereelse.fr), putting emphasis on the new iPhone's visual similarities to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus line-up while mentioning a "stronger" construction to the device's rear casing.

Future Supplier noticed a slight difference between the iPhone 6s Plus and last year's model, specifically in the location of a few screws used to hold the loud speaker module. But otherwise, the website noted a pretty aesthetically similar device, which makes sense for an "S" generation upgrade for the iPhone 6 line.

Another slight difference may come in the material actually used to create the rear housing for the iPhone 6s Plus, according to a source that spoke with Future Supplier. The source noted that the backing of last year's iPhone 6 Plus was "smoother" than the new iPhone, but simultaneously the 6s Plus will be getting a "stronger" rear housing, perhaps in response to the "Bendgate" controversy.

Good to see Apple finally coming clean about Bendgate.

Now, we just need to see a flush camera, no antenna lines, 32GB standard, 2 GB RAM, a better battery and a 4" size.

Does this mean the end of "Bendgate"? A problem that never actually existed.

Interesting that Apple took the "it is a non-issue" approach with the whole bend-gate thing yet they are doing this. Much welcomed but my 6 Plus bent and they wouldn't replace it saying it was my fault.


not a-typical

its like the old "antennagate" bs.

"you're holding it wrong".... but on the next version, we're fixing it anyways.

Rigidgate

But like the poster above said, why make it stronger if there was no bending problem in the first place?

My 6 has a bend at the volume buttons. I have owned every iphone and they are still all in good condition apart from my 6 that has the bend.


Careful xXFIREWIREXx, you're risking upsetting the cultists. In their minds there is no application for common sense.

A smoother back? I would rather have something textured to give more grip.


It's the other way around:

My god you people need to get your heads out of the sand. They wouldn't spend time and money fixing a non issue to placate a few people. It was an issue and they know it. They are fixing it this time around. Does Apple send you instructions on how to love your daily lives? Just curious.
