Last year when Apple had launched the iPhone 6 & the 6 plus, it was hit with the #BendGate where the larger version of the device could be easily bent. The issue did go viral & following which Apple did work on the build quality this year on the new iPhones. It’s still not a few weeks post the Official announcement & this year there’s another Gate that’s the #ChipGate. Let us talk more about this.

According to a few reports, different users are experiencing way different battery life on their devices & the processor is to be blamed here. There are two separate processors on the 6s & 6s plus which are manufactured by TSMC & Samsung. The A9 processor was sourced from both the manufacturers to fill up the huge demand during the launch which we had reported earlier. [13 Million iPhone Sold]. has published a graphical comparison of these where it is clear that the Samsung comes with 96mm squared while the TSMC is 104.5 mm square.

Few iPhone owners have done a comparison in terms of Battery Test on the devices where it was found that the TSMC phones lasted longer which is something very Important to make a note of.
