Today the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus were released. Last year, several video showed how bendable the iPhone 6 Plus was due to its incredibly thin design. These next-generation models are made of Apple’s custom 7000 series aluminum (same material as the Apple Watch Sport), are 0.2mm thicker and have extra protection around the volume controls. All of these should hopefully prevent #Bendgate from reoccurring. A new video posted by FoneFox tests the bendability of the iPhone 6s Plus.

Here’s how iPhone 6s Plus handles bendgate brutality

Similarly to last year’s videos for the iPhone 6 Plus, the new iPhone 6s Plus is put through bend tests to determine its durability and to see if Apple has finally fixed the bending problem. The first test shows the phone being bent by pushing in the center and pulling out the sides of the phone. Unlike the 6 Plus, however, the phone only bends slightly and bounces back into place once the test is complete. The second test finally damaged the phone when two people came together to bend it, but this won’t happen in real life circumstances.  Under normal usage, the iPhone 6s Plus will not bend so it’s safe to say that Apple has fixed the #Bendgate issue.
