There is a significant higher level of Zinc inside the aluminum used in the leaked iPhone 6S rear shell in Hilsenteger's possession. The new iPhone 6S also has a thicker anodization. Most likely to protect the aluminum 7000 from corroding. Aluminum 7000 is more prone to corrosion than the aluminum used today.
Besides proofing that Apple is using aluminum 7000 in the iPhone 6S, Hilsenteger also did a bend test.
The iPhone 6S is significantly stronger than the iPhone 6. The iPhone 6 bent at 30 pounds of force in Hilsenteger's bend test machine. The iPhone 6S only bent at 80 pounds of force. "This is a huge improvement, Wau!" says Lewis Hilsenteger in the video.
There you have it. The original bendgate guy Lewis Hilsenteger pulled it off again. He is the first to bend the iPhone 6S (rear shell) showing that the iPhone 6S will not have a bendgate. Is he responsible for Apple to change the design of the iPhone 6S and the use a stronger material? He sure is for some part.
His iPhone 6 bendgate video from last year went crazy viral and bendgate even became a thing in Apple Stores. People would try to bend the iPhone 6 devices on display in the store. Apple has taken on the problem and solved it.
