This Video Shows a Major Improvement the iPhone 6S Has Over the iPhone 6
If you’re STILL waiting in line at an Apple store while you’re reading this, hats off to you — people are getting their hands on the iPhone 6S today. Ahh, it seems like not that long ago that we were all sitting around in lines waiting for the iPhone 6/6 Plus to drop. It was only a short year ago that Bendgate happened. We know that Apple, in hopes of preventing Bendgate 2.0, has reinforced the weak spots of the iPhone shell. Plus, the new exterior is made with Apple’s custom 7000 aluminum alloy, which is supposed to be much, much stronger than before. According to MacRumors, there should be no Bendgate 2.0, and they have the video from the guys at FoneFox to prove it.
Christian from FoneFox starts by trying to bend the phone alone. He tries bending the phone so hard, his hands shake.
Nope. The phone will not give. Not even a dent. That new Apple alloy is STRONG.
So then he enlists the help of his friend so that can tag team bending the phone. We gotta say, it doesn’t look like they’re going easy on the handset at all :(
It’s literally five attempts in total — three of those tries with two men giving it all they’ve got — before they finally achieve a teeny little bend in the weak spot. Trust us, guys, this iPhone 6S Plus is NOT going to be bending in your pocket. Good job, Apple!
Check out the (kind of painful to watch) video below.
What do you think of the iPhone 6S? Will you be getting one? Tell us in the comments below!
Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
