“Apple wants you and all your friends to know that the iPhone 6 Plus probably won’t bend if you put it in your pocket or carry it around from day to day,” Elyse Betters reports for Pocket-lint. “And if it does bend, as with any Apple product, you should contact Apple.”
“In an official statement to Pocket-lint, Apple has suggested the entire situation is overblown and not at all a legitimate concern that customers should worry about: ‘With normal use a bend in iPhone is extremely rare and through our first six days of sale, a total of nine customers have contacted Apple with a bent iPhone 6 Plus,'” Betters reports. “It’s worth mentioning that one of the most popular videos from [Unbox Therapy], which reportedly showed an iPhone 6 Plus bending with little pressure applied, appears to be edited in a way that might reveal the video is a fake.”
“Notice the video shows the iPhone 6 Plus drastically bending at 1:40 minutes, and the time on the phone at that point displays 2:26 PM. The man in the video then proceeds to explain around 2:35 minutes into the video that he just finished bending the phone with his thumbs” Betters reports. “But there’s one problem with that version of events: The iPhone 6 Plus he supposedly ‘just’ bent displays the time 1:59 PM around 2:45 minutes into the video, roughly 27 minutes before the smartphone is shown succumbing to little pressure.”
