Apple iPhone 6S is Heavier than iPhone 6, Here’s Why.

iPhone 6S and 6S Plus are a tad thicker and heavier than their predecessors.

At the point when comparing the iPhone 6S with the iPhone 6, it quickly turned out to be clear that the new model is only a tad thicker and heavier than its predecessor.

The same goes for the iPhone 6S Plus when contrasted with the iPhone 6 Plus. In any case, the question arises, why are the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus heavier?

The iPhone 6S is precisely 14g heavier than the iPhone 6, while the iPhone 6S Plus measures 20g more than a year ago's iPhone 6 Plus.

For some people, the additional weight is not of any value, yet other existing iPhone 6 owners who wish to upgrade to this model can think about these details.

According to the report, the more durable 7000 series aluminum that Apple is using on both devices to prevent accidental bending is not responsible for this weight.

The 7000 series aluminum is somewhat thicker than 6000 series aluminum, yet there's little, if any, included weight.

The aluminum in the iPhone 6S really measures one gram less than the aluminum in the iPhone 6.

The iPhone 6S Plus aluminum measures 2 grams more than the aluminum in the iPhone 6 Plus, as per Apple.

On the other hand, the part that adds weight to both iPhone 6S models are the 3D Touch elements added to the display and the new Taptic engine.

The display assembly contains capacitive sensors that can register the pressure of taps and touches.

The iPhone 6S has a display assembly that weighs 29 grams, or more than 2.5 times the weight of the iPhone 6’S plus similar component (which weighs 12g).

The Taptic engine which likely forced Apple to reduce overall battery capacity, is expected to add extra weight as well.
