    Now that the 6S Plus is a approaching one year old. I'm wondering if any MacRumors readers have had any end issues?

    A few people I knew did with the original 6 Plus but I'm not sure about the 6S Plus.

    I'm really tempted to pre order the 7 Plus but the whole bending situation still puts me off a little.

    I think unless you want it to be bent, it will not be bent.
    I applied a rather small force on my previous iPhone 6 Plus and I already noticed the shell being deformed a little bit.
    I can press the corner and feel the subtle clicking sound.
    For iPhone 6s Plus, I do the same but nothing happened.

    Any smartphone will bend if you put enough pressure and try to bend it.
    It's not a hammer or drill bit.

    No problems here. I've only had it for about a month though, but I doubt it'll bend at all.

    Apple strengthened the 6s aluminum with 7000 Series aluminum, used from the Apple Watch Sport. I have not heard of any issues.

    1.5+ years of 6+ - nope.
    121 days (or 4 months) of 6s+ - nope.

    The new material is way harder and it feels extremely solid, the most solid smartphone I've ever had in terms of rigidity. I'm talking about the 6s

    No, but I never bent the 6Plus, either. Both were in rigid cases in my back pocket a lot.
