With the coming of the iPhone 6s expected within the end of the year, Apple is said to be developing a phone which will render Bendgate almost impossible.

A ValueWalk report said KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that the phone would come with a "super strong Series 7000 aluminum alloy." During the release of the iPhone 6 Plus, users were complaining that their phones were bending inside their pockets even under minimal pressure. 

This time, the phone's expected Series 7000 metal is the same metal used by the company in their Apple Watch.

"It is 60 percent stronger than the material used in the iPhone 6, but weighs only a third as much as stainless steel. In case you doubt Kuo's predictions, an Apple supplier has indirectly confirmed that the iPhone 6S will indeed have a stronger metal body," added the Value Walk report.

Meanwhile, Catcher Technology CEO Allen Horng reportedly claimed that there is higher production of metal casings because of the demand for these due to the bending issue of the latest iPhone release.

Horng also mentioned that to attain good results they use a process which involves "surface treatment on a harder metallic material that is more difficult than traditional metal casing processes." 

The iPhone 6s will also reportedly borrow the Force Touch technology from the Apple Watch, have a 12-megapixel camera, an A9 processor and run in the newest iOS 9 operating system.

Aside from these features, MacWorld said the 6s may have a rose-gold finish design and maintain the 4.7-inch display of the iPhone 6.

"We also don't think that the overall design of the iPhone 6S will be much different to the iPhone 6. Apple tends to keep the same external design for its iPhones for two generations, so expect the same slim, light and rounded design that's sported by the iPhone 6 to be present when the iPhone 6S arrives," explained MacWorld.

The report also added that the touchscreen of the phone will be similar to the Force Trackpad technology used in its MacBook. Explaining the said feature, MacWorld said this would mean that there will be a whole new level of interaction using the phone.

MacRumors, on the other hand, said it will have an improved touch ID compared to previous iPhone models. The handset will reportedly have reduced reading errors of registered fingerprints.

For its specific release date, the same report noted that it may have a September debut with mass production expected to start on August. There is still no available information on the price of the 6s, but is is expected to cost almost the same as the current iPhone models.

Apple fans are expecting a lot from this upcoming installment especially with the issues encountered with the current iterations. Surely, Apple is working on improving the performance of the device without compromising its design.
