    The 6s got a aluminium upgrade after bend-gate. The 32 gig version is new right? Do you think they are still using the stronger alu. in this one?

    So your logic is Apple went back to the 6000 Series aluminum used on the iPhone 6 for the 6s? I think not.

    Apple likely is using the 7000 series aluminum. But if you don't find your answer here, contact them and ask, they will get their answer for you. I'm confident it's the 7000 series aluminum.

    Lol sorry but they're not in the food industry where chefs need to use last bit of ingredients before the expiry date! Lol

    I heard from confidential sources that Apple ran out of headphone jack components, reason why they decided to forego with the headphone jacks on 7 and 7 plus.

    Whatever happened to Magnesium (my old laptop had such), Titanium (again a few laptops), Carbon Fiber (more laptops), and the past rumor of Apple playing with a thing called liquid metal?

    We all know Apple doesn't manufacture anything, everything is outsourced, and would one think headphone jacks are hard to make? Comeon, there must be thousands of suppliers world wide for headphone jacks. I will stick with "because Apple found another revenue stream."

    ha..ha to the headphone jack thing.

    it might be conspiracy theory, but when the reports on the SE bending it did´t seem to far fetched. I get the chef analogy, but look at it like this. They ordered in a lot of the aluminium that turned out to bend, could´t get rid of it and thought: ey if we wait a bit, bend-gate goes over and the new iPhone is introduced, then we start using this alu again..

    Price and strength of the materials. Apple is still playing with liquid metal, but that will likely not lead to anything. Ceramics or carbon fiber is your best bet for the next generation material for Apple products, heck they are already shipping ceramics. Also, you do know they had titanium macbooks, but replaced them with aluminium?

    There is sarcasm in my original post somewhere if you look hard enough. ;)
