iphone6-bend-testA report from a couple of days ago had suggested that the larger iPhone 6 Plus was bending whilst in the pocket of its users. There have been many photos that have since surfaced showing off the bend. For some users it was slight, but for others it was noticeably pronounced. Many videos have also surfaced showing just how malleable the iPhone 6 Plus is.

That being said, a recent statement from Apple has revealed that only 9 people have actually complained about their iPhones being bent. Yes, you read that right, despite all the fuss that has been kicked up, Apple only claims that a meager 9 customers have come forward with complaints. Given that Apple has sold 10 million iPhone 6 and 6 Plus units, we have to admit that is quite hard to believe.

Apple also added that the bending in the new iPhones are extremely rare and that the Cupertino company has put their phones through rigorous testing. “We chose these high-quality materials and construction very carefully for their strength and durability. We also perform rigorous tests throughout the entire development cycle including 3-point bending, pressure point cycling, sit, torsion, and user studies.”

According to Apple, “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. As with any Apple product, if you have questions please contact Apple.” So what do you guys think? Is it believable that only 9 customers complained about bent iPhones?
