iPhone 6 Plus Reportedly Bending in User Pockets [PICS]

Bent iphone6 plus

A growing number of MacRumors forum members are reporting that they have accidentally bent their iPhone 6 Plus devices after carrying them in their pockets. According to one user, his new iPhone 6 Plus was bent in his pocket during “a day of dancing, dining, and driving to a wedding”. Here’s what he says:

“Yesterday, I left at 10am with the iPhone in my left FRONT pocket of my suit pants. I drove 4 hours to a wedding, which also involved a lot of sitting during dinner etc but also 2-3 hours of dancing. I left at 2am and went to bed, driving home 4 hours back. 

So in total, the 6 Plus was about 18 hours in my pocket while sitting mostly. 

As I lay it on the coffee table and sat down on the couch to relax from the drive (yes, sitting again ), I saw the reflection of the window in the iPhones slightly distorted.”

Of course the pocket bending potential of iPhone 6 Plus is nothing new as iPhone 5/5s and iPhone 4/4S have also been reported bending in the past. In case of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus though, the devices may be a little more susceptible to bending due to their larger, thinner chassis. Nonetheless, one must always be careful while carrying a smartphone or phablet in his or her pocket.

It is always a good idea to remove the iPhone from your pocket before sitting, or in case it is not possible to do so, we suggest you use a rigid protective case to prevent excessive flexing or bending of the device.

Have you experienced the phenomenon with your iPhone in the past?
