iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus could be built using Series 7000 aluminium used in Apple Watch Sport


Taiwan’s Economic Daily News reports that Apple could use the 7000 Series aluminium used in the Apple Watch Sport on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

Apple had specially designed the new 7000 Series aluminium for the Apple Watch, which is 60% stronger than regular aluminium, and has one-third the density of stainless steel. In addition, the Series 7000 aluminium is machined, polished and blasted with microscopic zirconia beads to give them a consistent, satin texture on the Apple Watch Sport. The outer surface also goes through an anodising process that helps to prevent scratches and corrosion.

Apple currently uses anodised aluminium on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. While they look and feel good, they easily pickup dents and scratches during regular use. The use of Series 7000 aluminium will hopefully prevent this from happening on the upcoming iPhones.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are also expected to borrow the Force Touch feature from the Apple Watch as well, and will reportedly also come with 2GB RAM.
