Next-gen iPhone to sport stronger build

Apple iPhone 6When the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus was released, it was hit with controversy after there were claims that the devices bent in pockets of its users, leading to the whole bendgate scandal. Now according to a rumor, it seems that Apple is trying to avoid a similar scandal with their next-gen iPhone, and how they will be going about this is by making it tougher than its predecessor.

How will they do this? Assuming the rumor is to be believed, Apple will be employing the same material as the Apple Watch which is a type of aluminum alloy that supposedly ensures that the device will not be as prone to bending. We won’t say completely resistant since where there is a way, there will always be a way, but hopefully it will be strong enough for day-to-day use.

That being said, the material used is a completely different look from that of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and typically Apple does not introduce new product designs with its “S” range of smartphones, so it seems unlikely that Apple will be introducing a new design so soon. That and the fact that perhaps bendgate might have been a little blown out of proportion, especially in recent tests which found that the iPhone 6 is just as strong as some of its Android counterparts, and that it would take a considerable amount of force to bend.

Next-gen iPhone to sport stronger build

In any case the rumor is best taken with a grain of salt for now, but do check back with us later as we expect that more iPhone-related leaks will start making their way online as the launch of the next-gen iPhone approaches, which based on Apple’s schedule should be in the later part of the year.
