People have been claiming that their iPhone 6 Plus devices have been bending on their own, bringing a whole new meaning to curved screen. Well according to Apple itself the phone won’t bend under normal use and it’s only had nine official complaints so far. So basically if your iPhone 6 Plus has bent out of shape, you’ve been using it wrong.
Maybe it’s a case of users holding their phones the wrong way.
But if only nine people have complained about the problem then the internet has blown everything way out of proportion. That or people are preferring to take to social media to vent their frustrations rather than going to Apple itself. That’s actually more than likely.
Of course any sort of stress or pressure on any metal device that thin will cause it to bend, regardless of whether it’s a phone or not. the problem is whether or not these people have been manhandling their phones because they sure as hell won’t be admitting that. Then again it wouldn’t be the first time that Apple has denied that a serious problem is occurring, preferring to blame user incompetence.
The moral of the tale is that you probably shouldn’t put your iPhone straight into your pocket anyway, go and get yourself a case to keep it safe.
