In a new bold move, Apple has begun removing security tethers from their display iPhones at some of the retail stores. The goal of this move is to create a better and more personal user experience.

The issue with phones attached to a security tether is that customers are limited to a certain experience to use the phone. Pulling the display phone out too far can set off the alarm and the attached cable limits using the phone beyond the normal uses. It is simply look at most of the phone and pretend what it looks like as your phone.

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.
