In what seems to be a new tradition surrounding iPhone launches, users have found a discouraging smirch with Apple’s latest hardware: The long, skinny steel framework seems to be disposed to bending. A series of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners have encountered this unintended flexibility, and have posted cinema of their bleeding inclination online. One dauntless reviewer even posted a video of him tortuous it with his unclothed hands, display it doesn’t have to be strike by a automobile or forcefully sat on to furnish a effect.
Whether this is a widespread problem or one gifted by a tiny minority and amplified by amicable media is formidable to tell during this point. The highest-profile launch problem in iPhone story is undoubtedly “Antennagate,” that incited out to be a genuine (though not disastrous) pattern smirch with a iPhone 4; usually time will tell a astringency of “Bendgate,” as this new emanate was fast dubbed. It’s value observant that iPhones (and other steel phones, like a HTC One) have focussed before though it never developed into an epidemic. NBC News contacted Apple for criticism though we have not listened back.
