MacDailyNews Take: As we wrote earlier today:
As iPhones get thinner, Apple’s work with Liquidmetal becomes all the more crucial. Be careful out there. Use common sense. iPhones are currently made with aluminum and glass and are not unbendable/unbreakable.
If you tend/expect to be rough on your iPhones, consider a strong protective case.
