Following days of silence, Apple is defending the new iPhone 6 Plus against allegations that it bends easily. The company told The Wall Street Journalthat only nine customers have contacted Apple to complain about a bent iPhone 6 Plus. Both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus passed requisite stress tests that mimicked normal use, Apple said.
In videos and on social media, some iPhone 6 Plus owners have claimed they can bend the device in their pockets or even in their hands. The issue, now known as “Bendgate” or “Bendgazi” online, is just one headache Apple is dealing with this week. Wednesday the company pulled an update to iOS 8 after customers complained that the new software was causing problems with cellular service and Touch ID. Apple later apologized for the faulty update and issued directions for users to revert back to the original iOS 8 software.
