Why iPhone 6s and 6s Plus got heavier than previous models

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus has gone little heavier compared to iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and its because of some heavier material used in the recent models. You must be thinking about the Aluminum 7000 that is used to get rid of bending issue, but it’s not correct. Aluminum 7000 helped iPhone 6s to decrease 1g, but increased only 3g in iPhone 6s Plus.

iPhone 6s: Weight – 143 grams,   Thickness – 7.1 mm

iPhone 6 Plus : Weight – 172 grams,   Thickness – 7.1 mm
