Apple to launch stronger aluminum clad iPhone this year to avoid repeat of the bendgate


KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has given some insight on the upcoming iPhone which is slated to launch in the Fall. According to him, Apple is all set to put behind the “bendgate” fiasco and focus on building a stronger and more reliable iPhone for the market. Kuo mentions that Apple could be using the stronger 7000 Series aluminum that was used in the making of the Apple Watch.

This would also mean that the device would be slightly bigger or thicker, which is a necessary sacrifice to accommodate all those materials underneath. This also makes sense considering that Apple is said to be using the Force Touch technology on the touchscreen display. This is seen on the company’s current gen MacBook trackpads.

The other bit of good news is that Apple could finally get rid of that annoying camera sensor bump on the back, so the company is making a lot of changes for the upcoming iPhone. It is said that the company will use a 12-megapixel sensor on board and also increase RAM space on the device. It is hoped that Apple makes some adjustments to the battery life of the new iPhones as well.
