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.
