Earlier this month, the internet jokers took aim at the Apple Watch


Apple has been the subject of countless internet spoofs this month following the release of its new watch - and now the jokers are taking aim at the firm's 'flexible' iPhone 6 Plus.
Over the last 24 hours, #BentGate, #BendGate, and #BendGhazi have been trending on Twitter.
The social media storm is surrounding claims that Apple’s latest handsets change shape when placed in the pocket of a tight pair of jeans.
And while Apple has remained silent on the issue, the world has decided to give its amusing take on the controversy with spoof photos - that have now gone viral.


Meanwhile, a post about an iPhone 6 repair kit shows a photo of a simple wooden rolling pin to iron out the kinks.
Another anonymous user created an advert for Apple with the strapline: 'Not just a bigger display. A bendable display.'
The advert goes on to say: 'It's one thing to make a bigger display. It's something else entirely to make a bigger bendable display with brilliant colours and higher contract at even extreme viewing angles.
'But that's exactly what we did with the new Retina HDB display*.
'*Viewing angles may vary from pocket to pocket.'
