Angry users post photos of iPhones warped just a few days after buying them - #pocketbending

WHY IS THE iPHONE 6 PLUS BENDING - AND HOW CAN IT BE SOLVED?
The reason for the bend is due to the iPhone 6 Plus being made out of aluminium.
Aluminium is a relatively soft metal and is fairly ductile and flexible so, if enough pressure is applied, it will bend and move.
According to iMore, no part of either of the new iPhones has more than a quarter of an inch (0.64cm) of aluminium in any spot.
This means that, in areas of the phones that are weakest, it’s possible it could be susceptible to bending.
This is noticeable in images, with many of the bends occurring near the volume buttons and the SIM card slot.
These areas have segments of the shell cut out to make room for the buttons and SIM card, so there is less aluminium - and they are more likely to bend.
To stop the phone bending, users need to ensure that they do not put increased pressure on the middle of the phone.
For example, do not have it sideways in a pocket, as your pocket will push it against your leg, possibly causing bending.
Putting it in your back pocket could also have a similar effect, so storing it in a shirt pocket or bag might be a better option.
Another option would be to make sure you have a case for the phone so that it can maintain its rigidity even when pressure is applied.
