“A small but growing number of iPhone 6 Plus owners have reportedly bent their phones after carrying the devices in their pockets just days after launch,” Kelly Hodgkins reports for MacRumors. “In one instance, a new iPhone 6 Plus was bent during a day of dancing, dining, and driving to a wedding.”
“This potential for bending is of course not unique to the iPhone 6 Plus, with reports of bent iPhone 5 and 5s handsets surfacing in the past few years. As iPhones get thinner and larger, however, storage of the handset in a pocket becomes riskier,” Hodgkins reports. “To prevent bending, iPhone 6 Plus owners may want to remove their iPhones from their pockets before sitting or bending. If a pocket is unavoidable, then customers may want to place their device in a roomier pocket that allows the device to slide out the way. A rigid case may also provide protection from flexing or bending, as well damage from dropping the device. ”

MacDailyNews Take: 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.
