In 2014, Apple released the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in September. The release saw Apple move on to a new unibody design and screen sizes. The iconic top-placed power button moved to the right-hand side and the circular volume rockers became cylindrical.

It has been found that the stylus can be inserted back into the slot in one correct way, otherwise it gets stuck. Moreover, after [...]
The Unbox Therapy has been able to acquire the rear casing for the anticipated iPhone 6S. After having compared it with the iPhone 6, the video suggests that Apple might be switching over to a lighter and stronger aluminum casing.
The main idea behind every “S” phone is to be better than the previous installment. So, what are the changes that Apple is looking to make with the iPhone 6S?

Apple’s biggest competitors like Samsung, LG and HTC got together with some brutal take downs of Apple’s latest flagship in an event dubbed “bendgate”.
