iphone6-bendSomehow, I cannot help but think back of Alanis Morissette’s hit song, “Hand in my Pocket” when I read about reports of iPhone 6 Plus handsets actually bending a few days after purchased, where there are even photos that confirm this allegation as you can see above. Alanis could release an updated version of the song, where the lyrics could go “I’ve got one hand in my pocket, and a bent iPhone 6 Plus in the other.” It looks as though it is not a good idea at all to place your newly purchased iPhone 6 Plus in your pocket – front, back or otherwise, for too long, lest it starts to warp.

Taking into consideration how the iPhone 6 Plus would measure 6.22” x 3.06” x 0.28” (158.1mm x 77.8mm x 7.1mm), it is hence larger and yet thinner compared to any of its predecessors. This would definitely add up to having it being in a situation where it is more likely to bend in select situations.

So far, Apple has not issued a statement on the reported bendings of the iPhone 6 Plus, although you can be rest assured that should this issue be a widespread one in due time, Cupertino should be stepping forward with a few choice words to share with iPhone 6 Plus owners.
