Thanks to ZDNet, someone has completed a compilation of iPhone 6s videos all based around one question: Will it bend?



This follow-up comes from the old "Bendgate" issue as seen with the original iPhone 6 and 6 Plus late last year, with a few users noticing that their brand new Apple phones were bending under stress. In the name of science, a bunch of YouTube channels have tested out the new iPhone models, seeing if they will suffer the same fate.


The short answer is yes, if you're going to put any phone under this much pressure it's likely to bend or break either way. We didn't learn too much in these videos for the most part, but it was at least fun to watch. However, there is a much better 'real life' stress test below, take a look and see for yourself. What is impressive is that in the video above, the iPhone withstood 100 pounds of weight without any issues.
