iPhone 6s Plus: Will it bend?

If my inbox is anything to go by, there's one question about the new iPhone 6s that Apple hasn't answered satisfactorily - does it bend? Also, can it survive five minutes in boiling water?

If my inbox is anything to go by, there's one question about the new iPhone 6s that Apple hasn't answered satisfactorily - does it bend?

Remember " Bendgate"? Is this an issue that could plague the new iPhone 6s Plus owners? Well, I don't have an iPhone 6s Plus, and even if I did, I don't think I'd go full gorilla on it trying to bend it. But the world being what it is, there's no shortage of people who are more than willing to try to destroy their new iPhone - and upload the results to YouTube!

Here are some videos. If you don't like seeing tech cruelty, I suggest you look away.

Here is a more "real-world" test:

And here's a more scientific test for those of you who like more controlled tests:

Finally, forget bending, how does the iPhone 6s stand up to boiling water?

The bottom line: The new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus does indeed seem stronger than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that was released last year. Will it bend? Or course it will, after all it's made of aluminum and glass, but the force needed to bend it seems to be a lot greater.

Let's also add to this my real-world testing of the iPhone 6 Plus. I've had this handset for over a year and as many readers know I'm not the most careful person. The iPhone 6 Plus has been with me almost 24/7, living in my pocket much of that time. And I have hobbies - photography and auto repair - that see me crawling around on the floor regularly. Has my handset bent at all? No.

With the new handset being even stronger, I don't think owners have anything to worry about.
