There have been several reports recently on the bendability of the new smartphones produced by Apple (iPhone 6 & iPhone 6+).
This has left many people wondering if these are all just rumors, or if in fact the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is susceptible to bending.
According to theguardian.com, the fears of bending iPhones are “overblown”.
They have reported that, “although the new iPhone 6 & 6 Plus phones are more susceptible to bending when compared to the iPhone 5, the new iPhone should hold up for normal everyday use”. They also stated that the HTC one M8 is actually less durable when performing the bend test when comparing it to the new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus.
It appears that the bending issue doesn’t seem as urgent to the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, as it was initially reported. At Cell Clinic Vancouver, we haven’t yet seen any cases of this bending issue for the new iPhones. Although saying that, as iPhones get bigger and thinner, it is only natural for them to become more fragile and bendable. We recommend that you do get yourself a phone case if you are worried about your iPhone bending from everyday use, as that will give your new iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus some more support.
There have been several reports recently on the bendability of the new smartphones produced by Apple.
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus have been accused of being too flexible and some users have even posted pictures
and videos of their supposedly bent phones.
So, the big question is: do the new iPhones bend?
Well, according to Apple's website, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are made from "anodized aluminum,"
which is a type of metal that is known for being both strong and lightweight.
In other words, it's not exactly the kind of material that you would expect to be easily bent.
However, there have been a few reports of people bending the new iPhones with their bare hands.
One user even managed to curl the phone into a semi-circle shape.
