You Can Bend an iPhone 6 Plus With Your Bare Hands! [Video]

Posted by · 107575 views · Translate
Earlier today we warned users that the iPhone 6 could bend in your pocket. Adding credibility to that report is a new video that shows it's possible to bend an iPhone 6 Plus with your bare hands.

After seeing images of bent iPhone 6 Plus devices, Unbox Therapy noticed that their device had a slight bend in it as well. To confirm the reports, the channel decided to perform the bare hand test you can watch below.

They found it fairly easy to put a significant bend in the device. The weak spot seems to be around the buttons rather than the center of the phone.

Apple has yet to comment on the problem and users trying to get a replacement have had mixed results. If you've purchased the new iPhone, we strongly suggest you use a little more care when carrying it.

Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS to find out if Apple addresses these concerns.

Take a look below!

Bend gate is debunked! Put pressure on one specific area and bend it...try this on other smart phones and it cracks. HOW RETARDED!!! I will be unscribing from the author of the video. You suck and fat!

Okay, if someone can give me a phone to bend, I can definitely bend it specially if you put the focus of the pressure on a specific corner (rather as a whole in the middle). Sadly it's a fail attempt to pay someone to discredit a company.

AMEN!!!!! You have to be blind to see the trickery on his part.

Pardon? Not quite... trying to figure out how it "could" bend was the point. The video didn't criticize Apple in any way and actually supported their position that the iPhone6 won't bend significantly with typical use.

Get a case if you're rough with your phone and simply be careful. Lever forces increase when the span of a material increases. It's not made of hardens steel. I'm sure people are sitting on them or just not using common sense. Aluminum bends, doesn't matter who manufactures it.
