We're learning a lot about the forthcoming iPhone 6s as details of the device are leaked. Most recently, spectrometer analysis of a purported iPhone 6s shell has found that it will use the same 7000-series aluminum as used in the Apple Watch. This is a new alloy developed by Apple that includes zinc and magnesium, making it much stronger. According to Apple's website, it's 60 percent stronger than most aluminum, while still being light. Apple says it's the same aluminum used in competition bicycles.
